Who we are

Supportability is a locally based charity primarily operating in the Stockport area but also providing services in the surrounding areas for children, young people and adults with complex disabilities. We have been established since 1953, having been originally set up by a group of parents whose children had Cerebral Palsy. Today we provide a wide range of services for people with complex physical and/or learning disabilities.

Since its inception, the vision of the Charity has been to be able to make a service offer to people that is consistent, affordable and reliable, and in the last five years, the organisation has undergone a major change programme including a rebrand of the Charity’s name.
