We support people from the Irish community who have recently lost loved ones. This includes support regarding burial, repatriation for burial in Ireland or help sorting out someone’s affairs.

We also offer burial for people who are Irish but have no next of kin so that those who would otherwise have a pauper’s burial can be buried in a dignified way.

About Irish Community Care

We are a charity serving the Irish community in Manchester, including those who are Irish, of Irish descent or Irish Traveller.  We were set up in the 1980s by members of the Irish community in Manchester to help others in their community who needed support.

We now run a range of services, including advice and information, outreach support, social groups, bereavement services and support for survivors of institutional abuse.

We’re run by a small team of staff and a dedicated group of around 50 volunteers.
