Many thanks for enquiring about Headway.
If you would like to get involved please come down to our drop-in between 1 and 3pm on Wednesdays in the Basement at The Heatons Centre,(Stockport Signpost for Carers), Thornfield Road, off Balmoral Rd, Heaton Moor, Stockport SK4 3LD and introduce yourself to one our volunteer helpers. Parking and the entrance is by a ramp (behind hedge) at the rear of the building which is right next to the Heatons Library.
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 – 3pm except Christmas week
