Who are S.P.A.C.E. Stockport?
Stockport Parents of ADHD Children in Education (S.P.A.C.E. for short) is a registered children’s charity which supports families who have children with ADHD. There is no charge for parents or carers to attend our monthly meet ups, join our private online community or attend guest presentations.
Where can you find the SPACE Team?
They hold a monthly face to face meet up from 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm on the second Wednesday of the month at The Dog and Partridge pub on the A6 in Stockport. The meet up is for parents and carers only and there is no need to pre-book.
The website www.spacestockport.org contains a lot of information about ADHD and includes links to a number of useful resources. It also includes links to our social media accounts where we share information about ADHD and other issues that may affect local families.
The SPACE team are volunteers, which means that they aren’t always able to respond to emails immediately. The quickest way to get hold of the team is often via Facebook facebook.com/spacestockport
