Who we are and what we do

The Warrington Adult Carers service provides free support to adult Carers (including Parent Carers and Young Adult Carers in transition), the service focuses on identifying Carers and supporting them to access services to assist them in their caring role and to help them to maintain and improve their health and wellbeing. The overall aim of the service is to improve the quality of life for Carers in Warrington, supporting them to sustain their caring role and enhancing their ability to enjoy a life outside of their caring role.
