A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support.

If you are a carer, Cheshire & Warrington Carers Trust may be able to help make things easier for you. We deliver a wide range of local support services to meet the needs of carers in our community.

These range from support services catered to the carer, the needs of the person you care for and the services provided by other organisations.

Carers have different needs and Cheshire & Warrington Carers Trust can assist you in information regarding health issues, entitlements, mobility, grants for holidays, equipment and support. We also offer a wide range of activities, training and events for carers throughout the year across Cheshire.

All services offered by the centre are free of charge.

It’s a lifeline. I love it, it really helps break the loneliness.

Connect with other young adult carers and share what's going on for you. Have a laugh or a rant, whatever you like – with our team on hand every day.

Visit Matter
It's being able to share whatever matters to us: it's personal, like Facebook but confined and safer.

Babble

A safe space for young carers to chat, share experiences and have fun, surrounded by people who understand. Get posting, email us for private advice, or join our supervised chats.

For me Babble is like a big extended family.
