The strategic objectives are:
Trafford Carers Centre offers advice, advocacy, information and emotional support to anyone who is an Unpaid Carer in Trafford. The Centre holds details of other organisations in Trafford and numerous publications. This information is used to help Carers to learn about their rights and the services available to them. The Centre can also liaise with Social Services or other agencies or accompany Carers at meetings to secure practical and general support for the Carer or the person they are caring for. The Centre provides a listening ear for any Carers that require emotional support or simply want to off-load their problems or discuss their concerns.
Our casework team works with carers to assess their needs and look holistically at their life and how their caring role is impacting them.
The Centre operates an emergency card service. This scheme means that in the event of the Carer being in an accident or emergency, Trafford Warden Services are contacted to Co-ordinate care for the person the carer looks after. Carers can also activate emergency sitting services in illness or emergency.
Carers Support Funds
The Centre offers a flexible fund for any Carers who look after adults to have some time out.
