Supportability - Making life better for people with disabilities

The Festival Charity - Supportability

(Formerly Stockport CP Society)

Making life better for people with disabilities.

The 2020 Stockport Beer & Cider Festival Charity is Supportability (formerly Stockport Cerebral Palsy Society).

Supportability provide valuable support to children, young people and adults with complex physical and or learning disabilities and their families or carers. This support enables those we help to take part in and achieve daily life tasks that may not otherwise have been possible without our help.

The support we provide enables individuals to achieve daily life tasks or partake in activities that without our support may not have necessarily been possible.

We achieve this by offering a range of services that include:

  • One-to-one support in people’s own homes and out in the community
  • 24-hour residential care at Cheddle Lodge
  • Day services offering a wide range of stimulating, creative, and skills development activities
  • Leisure groups for people aged 14+
  • A disability cycling club (Stockport Wheelers)

What our service users say

‘Supportability has helped me get out and about, it’s got me helping and doing things. I’ve done things I couldn’t have done fifteen years ago. It’s given me real purpose.’ - Paul, 51, who has Asperger’s Syndrome.

‘The support workers come for a couple of hours a day – it might not sound like much but it enables me to work and provide for my family. By the time I’m home Molly has had a meal, is showered and changed – I can spend some quality time with her then. It’s great to just be her Dad for a few hours without having to be her carer.’ - Ciaran, dad to Mollie, 18, who has Cerebral Palsy.

Do you have a few hours to spare to volunteer for us at the Beer & Cider Festival? Supportability are looking for volunteers to work behind our charity bar and to help sell raffle tickets and snacks at the event. It’s a great experience and everyone who volunteered in 2019 really enjoyed it!
