About you

Manchester Health and Care Commissioning recognise the value that Carers provide in supporting vulnerable people to live independently, fulfilling lives.

The following survey has been designed working together with Carers to help us to identify their needs and how they can be supported better.

All responses received are confidential and the feedback gathered will be used to inform and influence how we can plan and buy services in the future. It will be further develop Carers training and development programmes that reflect your needs in partnership with Manchester Carers Network. 

Any unpaid paid carer is someone of any age who supports , unwashed, a relative, partner or friend who due to physical or mental illness, disability, frailty or addiction could not manage without that support.

We acknowledge that in Manchester we have a number of young Carers (below age 18). For the purpose of completing this survey Carers need to be 18 years of age .
