Our promise of tailored support is made possible by our breadth and depth of knowledge, through our unwavering commitment to the local people of Greater Manchester.

Our experience listening to generation after generation, for nearly 200 years, has taught us the importance of considering not just the individual but also the relationships around them.

Job Summary

The role of the young carers link worker will be to develop appropriate support, ensuring that carers from a wide variety of backgrounds are aware of their rights and are receiving the support and services that they require at the right time and in a suitable location. The role will also provide information, advice, and support to individuals and groups of carers as well as professionals and other organisations.

Job Purpose

The service supports carers of all ages across Salford through a model of identifying carers, triage to find the support they need and offering them the appropriate provision. Part of this may be an offer of information packs, access to groups, or a time-limited, 12-session package of support which will sometimes include a carers assessment.  The aim of such support is to enable carers to develop resilience and to also be linked into local community assets, thereby reducing their reliance on other services.
