Oblong logoStockport Progress and Recovery 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.

SPARC_frontThe 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:
