20th November 2020. The committee are regularly reviewing when it will be safe to re-open the drop in centre, at present it is clear this will not be possible before January 2021 at the earliest, and it may well need to be later than this, subject to local and national official guidelines and the availability of the centre and volunteers. The position will be reviewed again in the next two weeks and a further update will be posted on here.
We are hoping to hold a virtual meeting over the internet with by way of video conference at the same time as the drop-in ie. At 1.00pm each Wednesday. Existing members will receive a message from us with a link to sign into the video link. Any new members wishing to participate should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details of how to join in the video conference. We think it is important to stay in touch with our members as much as possible during these difficult times in particular so we hope you can join us for these web chats.
Many thanks for enquiring about Headway.
If you would like to get involved please come down to our drop-in and introduce yourself to one our volunteer helpers.
Great News from the 6th March 2019 the drop in is moving back to Wednesdays from Thursdays and will be open between 1:00pm and 3:00pm at the Bridge Hall Community Centre, Siddington Avenue, Adswood, Stockport SK3 8LX.
The drop in was previously open on Wednesday at the Heatons Centre.
There is no membership fee or charge for attending the Wednesday drop-in meeting, although sometimes we have to collect contributions towards the costs of outings when this can be managed by members.
New members need to be accompanied by someone who knows them well on their first four visits and after that we review the need for this, which may have to be ongoing, as we don’t provide care. A basic registration form has to be filled in including contact details etc.
You may also want to have a look at www.headforward.org which we are closely associated with; they run a day centre in Withington.
Perhaps you’d let me know when you plan to attend first so I can let our regular volunteers know to expect you. We’re very welcoming and it’s just a question of chatting to our other members and getting involved.
Once again many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.
Drop In every Wednesday 1:00pm – 3:00pm except Christmas week
