Welcome to Blackpool Carers
One of the Top Blackpool Charities, Blackpool Carers Centre provides specialist support, respite and outings for unpaid carers from the age of 5 years and their families. We help carers to create friendships, feel less isolated, strengthen their resilience and make happy memories.
Making a Better Life for Carers.
Our service is often a lifeline for many carers who would otherwise feel isolated and unable to cope.
A carer is someone, who without payment provides help and support to a parent, partner, child, relative, friend or neighbour, who could not manage without their help. This could be due to illness, disability, frailty, mental ill health or substance misuse.
