Please do leave a message and include your phone number.


Calls are charged at 7p/minute plus your phone provider's Access Charge.

This is an information line number only. Volunteers responsible for dealing with queries will not be permitted to give advice. For Stockport ME Group members, if you have a specific query, numbers on page 2 of HERMES still apply.

The Solidarity Drop-In

(benefits support).


The Solidarity Drop-in which was formerly located in the now closed Sir Joseph Whitworth Centre is now taking place in Disability Stockport's Centre for Independent Living, at 23 High Street, Stockport, SK1 1EG. It is on Mondays from 10 am to 4 pm.


They offer support with completion of applications for Personal Independence Payment and Employment and Support Allowance and information on social security sanctions. They can also help with referrals to the appropriate service in cases where advice, or representation in appeals is required.


High Street is on the route of the free Stockport Metroshuttle bus, service 300.


Anyone who is interested in volunteering to work with Solidarity Drop-in, is very welcome to drop in and chat to their team. They have two roles - reception, and support with forms and referrals. Training by an experienced professional in the field, is available for the latter role.
