What we do

Call 0161 477 1213 for information and advice on a wide range of subjects including:

  • benefits
  • housing
  • transport options
  • consumer and utilities problems
  • legal matters, tax and financial matters
  • paying for care
  • information and advice for carers
  • employment issues
  • reducing isolation
  • personal and home safety
  • finding or accessing practical help at home
  • improving or maintaining mobility, health and independence
  • identifying and supporting people with emotional issues
  • support and encouragement to identify options and issues

We'll help you to complete application forms and we're happy to speak to third parties on your behalf to resolve problems. An appointment is advisable for complex issues.

All our advisors are trained to give general advice but we also have a focus on issues affecting those in later life, their carers and families. We also provide telephone advice and a limited home visiting service if you're not able to get to our office.

We also link closely with the Stockport The Prevention Alliance (of which Age UK Stockport is part) and a range of other services provided by both Age UK Stockport and other partner agencies.

Our workers take a holistic and individually focused approach and will work with you to understand the situation and discuss the type and level of support that may be wanted and where it can best be found.

The Age UK Stockport I&A Service has recently been externally assessed and accredited with respected Advice Quality standards.
