Day centres

What is on offer?

Stockport Council, along with local community and voluntary organisations, run specialist day centres in the town. They provide a good opportunity for people who may not get out and about much to socialise and there are many activities available there. These include cookery, dance and fitness activities, computers and photography, arts and crafts, music and games.

To ensure that everyone who wants to join in the activities can do, there is care and support on offer. In addition, lunch and refreshments are served and regular days out and excursions are organised.

Who can attend a day centre?

Anyone over 18 with a physical or learning disability, or who have lost some or all of their sight or hearing, can attend a day centre. We can advise on which ones best meet your requirements, but we will need to do an assessment first if you need Adult Social Care support. Following this assessment we will discuss with you the support that is available and agree the best way forward.

What is the cost?

There is a charge for attending a day centre but how much of that you pay will be determined on the type of centre placement and how much care you need. To see if you qualify for any financial help with this, we will help you to complete a financial assessment forms.

Would you like more choice and control?

The Council can arrange services for you but if you want more choice and control over your money and how you spend it on services to help you live independently, we can support you in several ways. You can choose to:

  • Purchase your support using a budget that we give to you;
  • Let us arrange the support that we have agreed you need;
  • Continue receiving the same support;
  • Choose to have a combination of these arrangements.
