Access to support services

Mental Health is an issue that is extremely close to our hearts here at Stockport Homes. With 1 in 4 people being affected by mental illness each year, and a significant number of our customers dealing with poor mental health, it is a reality that everyone has had experience with, whether at home, work or within the community.

We can offer our customers and local residents support and advice, along with signposting to appropriate services. We can also offer our tenants a home visit or telephone call to understand your needs better, and to ensure you have access to the services you need. 

  • Support and access to Counselling Services
