Adult Carers Support
Everyone’s caring role is different and has unique circumstances. We can offer tailored support to ease the impact caring has.
It can take up to 2 years for someone to recognise themselves as a carer, which can effect both physical and mental wellbeing and lead to carer breakdown.
If you provide support to a friend, partner, relative or neighbour who could not manage without you, then you are a carer and Trafford Carers Centre can help you.
Use our checklist to help you to identify if you are a carer.
- Do you help a family member, child, friend or neighbour that:
- is frail
- has a disability or special needs
- has a chronic illness and/or
- has a mental health condition
- has dementia/Alzheimer’s
- has a substance misuse problem with drugs or alcohol.
- Is this help regular and ongoing?
- Does this help involve showering, toileting, dressing or other personal care?
- Does this help involve cleaning, cooking, shopping, transport and/or assistance with bills or other paperwork?
- Does this help involve medication or other health care?
- Would this person have difficulty managing on their own if you could not provide support?
- Do you receive Carers Allowance or no payment at all?
If any of these statements apply to you, Trafford Carers Centre is here to help you.

Adult Carers Assessments and Reviews
All carers have the right to an assessment and review which looks at their needs and the impact that their caring role has on their wellbeing. It also gives carers the chance to talk about other things going on in their lives and look at what support they need to help them achieve the things they want to do day to day.
Adult Carers Dedicated Support
Disabled, LGBTQ+ and BAME carers face the same challenges that all caring roles come with, however, they may face even more barriers, like discrimination, stereotyping, cultural barriers which will make their caring role difficult. We can provide these individuals with the extra and tailored support they require.
