Groundwork - Green Doctors

Meet James who is 62 years old and from Wythenshawe.

Before being contacted by Groundwork, James was without any heating or hot water. His boiler had packed in, and he wasn’t sure on how he was going to get his boiler fixed. After speaking with a member of the Energyworks Team he managed to get his boiler replaced. He was extremely happy with the help he received, and how efficiently the gas engineers fitted his new boiler.

Manchester Mind: Rent arrears, debt and benefits

We have been supporting Andrea*, a 55-year-old woman with complex needs, who is a carer for her adult son. She was facing eviction from her private rented property due to rent arrears.

We identified that she had recently fallen victim to several financial scams, and advised on how to take measures to protect herself. She was searching for paid employment, so we were also able to provide her with resources and signpost her to nearby job clubs.

A helping hand when money is tight

The Carers Manchester Contact Point is here to help busy carers find the support they need. This is often practical or emotional – but more and more, it’s financial. A fast-moving cost of living crisis means our helpline has seen a jump in calls from carers struggling with food, energy, transport and other basic living costs.
