Other news….

There is always something we are developing at gaddum. Here is our latest update:

LGBT carers-be heard!

Manchester Carers Network, a group of 21 voluntary organisations who provide information, advice and support to carers, is working with LGBT Foundation, who deliver support and information services to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) communities, with an aim of understanding the views of LGBT carers and learning how they can help improve access to services, support and information that is relevant and beneficial to them as a carer

A carer is anyone who cares, unwaged, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support. Together we are looking for views from LGBT carers or services providing support across Manchester. They want you to tell them if you think anything extra is needed for LGBT Carers besides what is currently offered by existing health, social care and LGBT services.
