Salford Carers Service

About Carers Services in Salford

Salford Carers Service has been supporting carers locally since 2001. We offer a comprehensive range of support, tailored to individual carer’s needs.

Unwaged carers are often looking after someone simply because they care, and this can be tough. Being a carer can be stressful with very little me time. I give help and support to those people helping and supporting others.

If you look after someone who has mental health issues, physical disability, long term illness, learning disability, drug or alcohol issues, dementia or frailty due to old age, we are here to support you.

Our team can offer 1-to-1 information, advice and emotional support, we can signpost you to other services and support you to access a Carers Assessment.

Services include outreach services in our local community, as well as working with a host of partners in health, social care and the voluntary sector to make sure that carers are identified and supported in a timely way.

We have an award winning young carers and young adult carers service which works closely educational providers in the Salford and other youth service providers; our support is for the whole family.

The team work with other non statutory partners in the city, such as the Lowry Theatre, to ensure we can support carers tackle the poverty of isolation.

You can stay up to date with our activities by following us on the website & via Twitter, or sign up for our monthly E-Newsletter for adult carers by emailing us.

Or do you need help with:

  • Food shopping
  • Getting essential medication
  • Getting fuel (if you are on a pre-paid meter for gas or electric)
  • Looking after pets

Or are you a carer that needs help or advice?

If you answer yes to any of the above and you would like to speak to someone, call the Spirit of Salford Helpline on 0800 952 1000, Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 6pm, Saturday, 9am to 1pm.
