Social services Get help, support or social care

Help and support

Sometimes life can be difficult and we could all do with a little help to get things back on track.

We work closely with lots of different organisations such as schools, sure starts, GPs, health visitors, housing providers and voluntary organisations who offer a wide range of support.

If you or your family need some extra support you can find the help you need here.

Social care and support

You might need social care after a fall or accident, while recovering from an operation, due to illness, disability, or a major change in your life where you need some extra help and support.

If you, or someone who is aged 18 or over and lives in the area covered by Manchester City Council, needs care and support, you can contact us for advice, information and an assessment of your needs. We’ll talk to you about your situation and ask questions to understand how you are currently managing and what your likely needs may be.

We'll do this even if you choose to pay for services yourself.

We'll also provide advice, information and an assessment of your needs if you care for someone else – whether or not they choose to have an assessment themselves.
