Carers Focus Group (Salford) – Male Carers

May 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Are you a Male Carer*? We’d love for you to attend this Carers Focus Group. 

  • Tuesday 28 May 2024, 6pm – 7:15pm, Online (Zoom)

#HaveYourSay on carer support services. We’d like to hear about any: 

  • Positive experiences 
  • Issues / barriers to engagement 
  • Your recommendations for improvement 

42% of carers in the UK are men, but we know the proportion of male carers accessing support services is less than this. We want to know how we can best support male carers.  

So what’s working and what isn’t? What would you like to see offered, that currently isn’t? 

Maybe you want us to offer more sociable activities, so you can have a break from the stresses of caring, meet other male carers and have some fun? 

For example walking football, 5 a-side football, going for a hike, having a game of snooker/pool, going for a bite to eat, watching cricket, going bowling etc. 

Maybe you’d like us to restart the male carers group?  

We want to make sure our services are right for male carers. So join from the comfort of your own home, share your experiences and ideas.  

A male staff-member will facilitate the session, supported by our Carers Involvement Worker Jemma. 

By volunteering your time and having your say, you will help shape services and make a positive difference to Salford Carers. 

Feel free to stay afterwards and chat with other carers, or ask staff questions until 7:45pm.  

To book: contact | 0161 834 6069 (ext 4009). 

We’re also running this Carers Focus Group on Thursday 23 May, 10:45am – 12:30pm, Eccles Gateway, if that works better for you. Or get in touch if you’d prefer to share your thoughts via phone or email. 

Here’s a 1 minute video of what Carers have said about Focus Groups.

*A carer is anyone who cares, unwaged, for a friend, partner, family member, or neighbour, who due to illness, disability, a mental health condition, substance misuse, or frailty cannot cope without their support.
