Events

Signpost’s activities are a great chance to meet other local carers and our lovely Signpost staff.

Our current activities can be found below and we have lots more in the pipeline. Please read the descriptions of each event as some activities are designed for current carers, or former carers, and some activities are open to all our wider Signpost family.

All events are risk assessed. We have limited places on some activities so booking is essential.

To book places on any event please use the RSVP or ticket option available in each activity.

If you are struggling with the RSVP option please email bookings@signpostforcarers.org.uk or call the office on 0161 442 0442

If you are struggling to leave the person you care for because they need regular or constant supervision, please consider applying for our Take a Break Service. You can access this 3 times a year, for up to six hours at a time. Full details can be found by clicking the Apply for Take a Break button below.

Dear Friend and Supporter of Signpost

Like many organisations, we are experiencing increased demand for our services alongside reduced funding and donations. To enable our team to work as effectively and efficiently as possible, we have taken the difficult decision to close our phone lines from 1pm, Monday – Friday.

If you do call us in the afternoon, please do leave a message with your name, number and a summary of your enquiry. Our colleagues will be checking voicemails throughout the afternoon and will call you back as soon as possible. This will be within 2 working days. Alternatively, please email info@signpostforcarers.org.uk

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you in advance for your understanding.
