The Festival Charity - Stockport CP Society

Enabling disabled people to live life to the full.

The 2019 Stockport Beer & Cider Festival Charity is Stockport Cerebral Palsy Society (Stockport CP).

Stockport CP is a parent/carer-led registered Charity that has provided support to local disabled people since 1953. Now in it’s 66th year supporting disabled children and adults to live as active and independent a life as possible through a range of projects and services. The Society’s work spans Stockport, East Cheshire, Tameside, Trafford and Derbyshire.

At Stockport CP, we know that everyone is different, so we ensure that we put individuals’ interests, strengths and needs at the heart of everything that we do. 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

‘Stockport CP 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 Molly (18) who has Cerebral Palsy.
