Walthew House

Charity description

Walthew House logo
Walthew House is a small independent charity in Stockport that supports local people who are Blind, Visually Impaired, Deaf, Hard of Hearing or who have Dual Sensory Loss. The organisation provides practical and emotional support through a variety of services and activities, from a visually impaired steel band to a not-for-profit equipment resource centre.

People who live with a sight or hearing loss can often be at greater risk of suffering from social isolation, where they feel unable to leave their homes and interact with the wider world. Walthew House recognise this and strive to create a safe and welcoming environment where people can feel comfortable communicating with others.

Based on Shaw Heath, Walthew House supports over 250 local people each week through a range of weekly services. These range from a chair-based exercise class and a tandem cycling group to a youth club and a visually impaired steel band. The charity also hosts a not-for-profit equipment resource centre, where people can access advice and demonstrate equipment that may aid their daily lives. The centre is the only one of its kind in Greater Manchester.

Charity No: 215469
