Along with this Trafford Carers Centre also has a bereavement support group, an emergency helpline, young carers support group, an Art club, Craft club and a Choir.
See Trafford's Carers, Family and Friends Strategy for how we are working to:
- promote the independence and physical and mental wellbeing of carers and their families.
- empower and support carers to manage their caring roles and have a life outside of caring.
- ensure that all carers receive the right support, at the right time, in the right place, including when caring comes to an end.
- respect the right of all carers to decide and choose in relation to how much care they will provide.
- ensure all carers will be respected and listened to as expert care partners and will be actively involved in care planning, shared decision-making and reviewing services.
- ensure all carers have access to training & learning to support their caring role.
