CARERS INNOVATION FUND - Carers UK Forum

CARERS INNOVATION FUND

Discuss news stories and political issues that affect carers.
The Department of Health Carers Innovation Fund is making grants of up
to £25,000 available for work to support carers. The fund is open to
groups that work with people with particular conditions, illnesses or
with particular age groups.
The grant should help carers to maintain a life of their own alongside
their caring responsibilities; assist with the early identification of
carers; and support and help them make informed choices about their
lives. The deadline for applications is 17 November 2010.

Apparently carers centres are excluded by that list, Excalibur.
Do such groups exist?
Since having to give up work in September 2009 to become a carer I've been searching around for carer's organisations local to me and not found a one? I'd like to earn the £100 they keep saying I could earn without my allowance being effected and would like some assistance. It's quite a culture shock going from paid employment to virtually nothing in terms of money and I feel like a lost soul.
Does anyone know of any groups near Oldham/Rochdale?
Or this:

Which one is able to help may depend on your actual location.
Many thanks you guys.
