Welcome to SPARC

Oblong logoStockport Progress and Recovery Centre (formerly Stockport Day Centre) is a local voluntary organisation providing support to adults in the Stockport area who experience mental health problems.

We offer a range of leisure, therapeutic, educational and social activities and facilities, developed in consultation with our members, in order to promote integration and mental and social well being.

Since April 2013 SPARC has been proud to work together with Stockport and District Mind and Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council providing an Enablement and Recovery Service as part of the
SPARC_frontStockport Mental Health Alliance. This is a constantly evolving service offering service users in Stockport a seamless service to help support them in their hopes, dreams and wishes for the future.

The centre was set up as a registered charity in 1985. We employ around 20 staff as well as a larger number of volunteers who constitute an important element of the service we provide.

The centre is managed by a committee made up of representatives from various local mental health services including Stockport and District Mind. our volunteer team, members of the centre and other interested persons.

We are principally funded by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council Social Services, but a considerable amount is raised annually through fundraising and also from events organised by the centre and its members.

We would like to thank the following funders who also support SPARC:
