Being There

Being There is a small, local charity providing emotional support and home-based practical help to people with cancer,strokes, heart disease and COPD. We also support families and carers. We provide services in Manchester, Trafford, Salford and Tameside.

We can offer emotional support, along with home visits, social events and practical assistance, for example help with shopping, as well as support at hospital appointments.

Our services are delivered by specially trained volunteers who are managed by a team of professional staff.

Please visit our website below to learn more about our volunteers and our work.

We are still open during the coronavirus outbreak. We are currently offering emotional support via the telephone and information about local support services. Please see the website link below for local contact numbers.
