As a borough, Stockport is thriving; with attractive countryside villages and a £1bn investment programme underway, it’s no surprise the area is receiving positive media attention. However, despite the buzz, there are areas in the borough which lack access to the opportunities available elsewhere.

We work primarily in central Stockport and Brinnington, creating solutions that put power in local hands, creating skills and jobs for a greener economy and delivering greenspaces for nature, for climate and for everyone.

Our work with local people & communities
