I’m an adult carer

Here to help Wigan’s carers

Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre is an is an established, successful and well-respected independent registered charity (1138908) that supports unpaid adult carers looking after someone who lives in Wigan borough.

Here at WLCC we aim to support all adult carers to recognise their own needs, have their voices heard, help with their physical and mental wellbeing and ensure they are fully understood, valued and supported in their caring role.

There are an estimated 36,000 people in Wigan supporting someone living with an illness or disability or a mental health need.  If you are an adult carer, we are here for you.

We’re here every step of the way

People often don’t recognise themselves as a carer but if you provide support to a friend, partner, relative or neighbour who could not manage without you, then you are a carer and Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre can help you.

All caring journeys are different, at WLCC we tailor our help and support to each person’s unique situation.  All of our services are free of charge or subsidised and we run them from a wide range of community venues including doctor’s surgeries, hospitals and community venues, as well as from our Carers Centre hub at 3-5 Frederick Street, Hindley. We can also visit  carers in their own homes or near to where they live.
