About us Who we are Who we are Signpost Stockport for Carers is an independent local charity which provides free, confidential information and support to unpaid carers of all ages in the Stockport area. A carer is somebody who looks after a relative, partner or friend who is ill, disabled, frail, or confused. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for carers in Stockport. We do this by working in partnership with statutory and voluntary organisations and by acting independently in the interests of carers throughout Stockport. We provide information and support to assist carers in their caring roles and enable them to meet their own needs as individuals. We believe it is important to raise the profile of carers in Stockport, encouraging a wider recognition of their enormous contribution to society.
