Carers Manchester Contact Point is a ‘first point of contact’ service that offers tailored support and advice to all unpaid carers aged 18 plus in the Manchester City Council area.

We are a partnership of GaddumLMCP Care LinkManchester Carers Forum and Wai Yin Society, working together to provide the contact point as part of the new Carers Pathway in Manchester.

Unwaged adult carers in Manchester are able access the Contact Point for information, advice and support for a range of issues with just a phone call, email or click of the mouse. Trained advice workers are able to answer your queries or direct you to the relevant service. No question is too big or too small.

Gaddum, LMCP Care Link, Manchester Carers Forum and Wai Yin Society have over 300 years of expertise between them in serving a diverse range of communities in Manchester including Chinese and Southeast Asian carers.

This means there are advice workers available to offer advice and support in different languages, on a range of issues including:

  • Benefits and financial advice
  • Bereavement support
  • Employment advice
  • Your rights as a carer
  • Older carers
  • Support for parent carers

We offer a safe space to talk about and discuss your caring role and will be able to signpost you to community services should you need them or make a referral for ongoing support.

Our Contact Point phone line – 0161 543 8000, is open Monday – Friday, 10am – 4pm. For more information contact Carers Manchester.
