Stockdales is a local registered charity in Manchester supporting children, young people and adults with learning disabilities. Like all charities, we’re always grateful for your kind donations – any amount you can spare will make a huge difference to the essential work we do, and to the people we work with.

Each year we aim to raise £250,000. This helps cover the cost of lots of things such as holidays, activities, transport, specialist equipment and developing our vital services.

Every penny counts and your donations really make a difference, helping people with disabilities to have new experiences and learn new skills.
