We are a volunteer group who have been trained by an experienced professional to offer support with completion of applications for Personal Independence Payment, Employment and Support Allowance and information on social security benefit sanctions. We can also help with referrals to the appropriate service in cases where advice, or representation in appeals is required.

We operate on a 'drop-in' basis. There is no need to book or for prior contact with us. However, please bear in mind, if your requirement is for support in completing PIP or ESA assessment forms, it can take up to two hours approximately to do this. It is advisable therefore to arrive no later than 2 p.m. if you want to complete the form at a single visit and of course, you may have to wait if we are busy.

Singing for Fun

Thursday 1- 2pm, drop in, MIND -  Contact :  0161 480 7393
Singing For Fun, is a unique, inspirational, group that enriches the lives of  Stockport's community. It unites people of all backgrounds, age, gender and culture, and celebrates the joy of being alive, by singing, and having fun .

The group is tutored by Stockport Singing legend Sheila Gott, with invaluable accompaniment from keyboard player Kim Roberts and facilitated by yours truly, meet to sing a selection of popular songs, old and new, ranging from Jessie Jay's Price Tag to the rousing, ''Do You hear the people sing", finale from Les Miserables.

Everybody is welcome! You don't have to be a Bono or Beyoncé, I can only just  carry a tune ... and  have been known to drop them!

Shakespeare posed the question 'To be or not to be?'  Singing for fun provides a warm, caring, environment that lets people be themselves and be part of a community group that enriches the lives of everybody it touches.

If you join the group I can't guarantee you'll get the leading role in 'Les Miserables', but I can guarantee, you'll be less miserable!
