Bury Carers Service
Gaddum is sad to announce that from the end of May 2020, we will no longer be providing adult carers support services in Bury due to a change in the management of the contract.
For the last 11 years, Gaddum has provided direct support and advice to over 4,000 unwaged carers in the borough. The service also facilitated a very popular weekly coffee morning at the Mosses Centre which hosted up to 60 carers each week who came together to offer peer support, a friendly face and a place of respite for many.
Gaddum would like to reassure any carers currently being supported by our Bury Carers Service that our service provision will remain unchanged; we will continue to offer telephone advice and support until the end of May. Also, we would like carers to know that the current staff team will be transferred over to the new service provider as part of the change in contract, so initially the team will remain the same.
For any concerns or questions about this please speak to Caroline Malvern, Carers Engagement Co-ordinator at Bury Council on 0161 253 5439 or C.Malvern@bury.gov.uk
Gaddum Carers Bury aims were to improve the lives of carers throughout the borough.
This was a service for carers who provide unwaged care or assistance for a relative, friend or neighbour who is frail, has a disability or a long term physical or mental illness.
This service worked in partnership with the Local Authority, CCG and other voluntary organisations and offered information, guidance and practical and emotional support to Carers.
This service is no longer delivered by Gaddum as of the end of May 2020.
