Young Carers during Covid 19

Trafford Carers Centre

Trafford Carers Centre and the Young Carers Team are still up and running throughout the lockdown.

Making a referral

A young carer is someone aged 5 - 25 who is helping to look after someone in Trafford with a long term health condition.

Referrals to the Carers Centre can be made by anyone: a professional, a family member or the young person if they are aged 14 or over, via the online referral form, by email or by calling the Helpline and selecting option 1.

Telephone: 0161 848 2400

Carers assessments

Once the Carers Centre receives a referral they will make an initial call to identify any urgent support needs. A full carers' assessment would then take place.
