Stockport Advocacy

The Stockport Total Advocacy trust was formed in 2004 as a result of a successful funding bid to the Department of Health on the back of the White Paper ‘Valuing People’. This paper acknowledged that many people with learning disabilities are pushed to the margins of society.  Therefore, people with learning disabilities living in Stockport have been our priority for advocacy support.

Stockport Advocacy are an independent, not-for-profit organisation set up to provide advocacy support for adults over 16 with learning difficulties / disabilities who live within the Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council area. This means enabling your voice to be heard, speaking for you when you can’t and supporting you when you can. Stockport Advocacy is about supporting, enabling, empowering you to express your views and concerns, and access information and services where needed.
