Welcome to Talbot House

Talbot House supports parents and carers of people who have learning disabilities in Manchester. We are a one stop shop where carers can pop in for a cup of tea and a chat with others in the same boat.  We also offer additional services such as:

  • One to one support
  • Information about money and benefits
  • Training for carers
  • Carer's lunches
  • Day trips out
  • Pampering treatments - nail bar, massage and beauty treatments
  • THRIVE - this is our special project for older carers where we assist carers to make plans for the future
  • and much more...

We are here to improve the quality of life for parent carers of people with learning disabilities.

People can laugh, cry, identify and support each other here through the sharing of personal experiences and they always leave feeling better than when they came in!

Call us or pop into the centre you will always be made welcome and our tea is second to none!

We are open from 10:00am - 3:00pm Monday to Friday
