Welcome to Stockport Advocacy

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, we have decided to close our building, the Land O' Cakes, until further notice following government guidelines regarding COVID-19. (Click here for Stockport Council's information on COVID-19). All our advocacy services will continue, while following these guidelines. All future Group 48 and Speaking Out Groups are cancelled until it is deemed safe to resume. Please call 0161 480 8979 if you need to speak to a member of the team. Thank you for your understanding and we will see you soon.

We are a Community Benefit Society that provides information and advocacy services across Stockport Metropolitan Borough. We offer direct and local support via professionals and volunteers.

 

Advocacy means enabling your voice to be heard, speaking for you when you can’t and supporting you when you can. Advocacy is about supporting, enabling, empowering you to express your views and concerns, and access information and services where needed.

 

Unfortunately, we are unable to  provide support for benefit enquiries/appeals/completion of forms, or employment tribunals however; we will always try to signpost you to an appropriate service

Stockport Council have introduced a dedicated coronavirus helpline for vulnerable people.

It means that the most vulnerable people in Stockport will be able to access support Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm and on Saturdays from 10am to 4pm, by calling 0161 217 6046.

The helpline will provide advice and tell you how you can access support. You can call the helpline if do not have a network of family and friends you can call upon for support particularly if:

- you're over the age of 70 and you're self isolating
- you have received a letter from the NHS advising you're high risk and should stay at home
- you're medically vulnerable according to the government criteria and should stay at home

Call handlers for the council will then be able to provide advice about how you can access practical support including local support for those that are isolated and feel alone.
