Would you like to become a Penpal?

Whilst out helping local people during the time of COVID-19, local services have become aware there are a lot of lonely and isolated people living in our community. Many of these are unknown to local services as they have never asked for help.  Healthwatch Stockport along with our partners Age UK Stockport and Stockport Advocacy, want to change this. 

We want all our residents to feel that someone cares about them, and you can help do this by simply becoming their penpal.  A letter from a local resident/family or pictures drawn by a child every couple of weeks would give them something to look forward to and help them to feel valued. 

Our penpal scheme ensures no addresses details have to be exchanged.

If you are interested, please contact Healthwatch Stockport with the details below.
