Neurodiversity: Support for Parents and Carers


SPACE Stockport ADHD Group:


SPACE Stockport is a support group for parents and carers of children and young people in the Stockport area with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and associated conditions. The SPACE committee members are all local parents, who have children with ADHD.

We hold regular meet ups, which are an opportunity to talk to other parents who face the same challenges, in a relaxed and informal way. 

We will be sticking to our regular slot of the second Wednesday of the month, between 7.00 and 9.00 pm but we have changed venue. Our meetings are currently held at The Dog and Partridge in Great Moor Stockport (272 Buxton Road SK2 7AN)


Autisk - Autism and Disability Support Group:

Autisk is a constituted support community group offering social groups, workshops, advice and signposting to families who have children with additional needs.
No diagnosis is needed to join our groups as we are very aware that it is hard on the pathway to diagnosis.
We have a fully functional sensory room that can be accessed for free via our social groups and it is also open to use every Wednesday 11.30am-2pm.
We welcome families from all areas of Stockport and surrounding areas.

Spectrum Gaming

Spectrum Gaming is an online community for autistic young people which has three main intended outcomes:

1) Building Friendships - A lot of autistic young people are lonely, isolated and struggle with friendships. We wanted to create a community where autistic young people feel comfortable and can make strong friendships in a safe way. Our main provision is our online community, that anyone from across the UK can access. We also run meet ups for young people who live in the Greater Manchester area.

2) Increasing Self-Acceptance - Because of how much people misunderstand autism and the way it is diagnosed, unfortunately many autistic people hate their diagnosis or feel ashamed of being autistic. We want to make sure as many autistic people as possible are able to accept their differences and live the happiest lives they can

3) Advocacy - We don't just want to be a community that enables autistic young people to develop meaningful friendships and develop a more positive perspective of autism. We want to create a movement that will have a positive influence on society through advocacy, and enable strategic change to ensure the needs of autistic young people are met across the UK. We have created a platform where young people can share their voices through content, talks and more. You can see some examples of content we produce on our YouTube channel.


You can call us on 0333 405 4567 at the following times to speak with one of our advisors:

Tuesday 10am to 1pm
Wednesday 10am to 1pm
Thursday 1pm to 5pm
You can also email your enquiries to: or through direct message from our Facebook and Instagram

Collated by Inclusion Service and PACTS February 2023

A new Neurodiversity Library session is starting at Brinnington Library on Thursday 9th February.

Brinnington Library will host these sessions from 3:30pm – 5:30pm on the 2nd Thursday of each month.

The sessions are aimed at neurodiverse individuals and their families. This includes diversities such as Autistic spectrum, ADHD, Bipolar, Tourette’s, OCD, etc. These sessions are during staffed hours and the library will be open to the public at the same time.

This is an all-age inclusive Library drop-in session. Our Libraries are naturally non-judgemental spaces, but these sessions are to help relieve any social expectations to act a certain way. We welcome you just as you are.
