The Jewish Blind Society merged with the Jewish Welfare Board to become Jewish Care. MJBS therefore became part of Jewish Care. Manchester House in Southport was sold to a private residential care provider. The organisation became autonomous in 1993. The Northern Jewish Talking Newspaper was established in partnership with the League of Jewish Women. The remit of the organisation changed. Due to advances in the treatment of visual impairment, there were less people suffering from this disability. The organisation focused on the needs of older and disabled people. The name of the organisation was changed to Manchester Jewish Community Care.
