Changing Times

Changing Times

Changing Times is a Signpost project aiming to support carers during difficult life transitions.

With the help of experienced current and former carers acting in a voluntary capacity, Changing Times offers support to help carers adapt or move on from being a full time carer, and rediscover their independence.

You might like to become involved with Changing Times:

  • When the person being cared for moves into a care home
  • When the person being cared for passes away

We incorporate a wide variety of support such as practical support with Power of Attorney, making changes to names on utility bills, closing joint bank accounts as well as more general things like making new friends, finding new hobbies or just having something to get out of the house for.

If you feel you would benefit from some support during your own ‘changing times’ or if you would like to volunteer to support others, please call us on 0161 442 0442 or email

The Changing Times project has been made possible thanks to funding from the Lloyds Bank Foundation.
