Be Caring – Care services in Manchester
Be Caring delivers over 3,200 hours of home care services in Manchester every week. A dedicated team of more than 150 home care assistants cover the area on foot, by car and even bicycles!
At Be Caring we strive to offer bespoke and person-centred care. Above all we put service-users’ needs first by making personal preferences and family concerns our priority. So, it’s our commitment to meet the needs of those who we support by providing the highest standard of care services in Manchester.
We’re employee-owned and a social enterprise meaning we always put people first. Most importantly, this means that profits don’t come first. Rather than satisfying external share-holders, Be Caring invests any profits in people. Therefore, our focus is on developing skills and creating opportunities for colleagues to succeed. So, our communities directly benefit from our hard work.

Where we provide care and support
The Manchester office in Wythenshaw is a food bank drop-off point. This means that workers and office staff donate regularly. Often this is then passed to one or more of the people we support. As a consequence customers experiencing financial difficulty have access to food.
Be Caring works closely with the local authorities, Continuing Healthcare and family members. Together we co-create care plans to provide each customer with a support packaged that’s tailored to their needs.
We’re a lively team who all contribute to service delivery. We are proud of the care being delivered and are dedicated to making a difference and going above and beyond.
