Independent Options is turning 40 and we are celebrating in style with a birthday themed Summer Fair to remember!

Join us on Sunday 9th July from 11am – 4pm for a fantastic day of family fun! There’ll be fairground rides, balloons, face painting, tombolas, raffles, cakes and lots more.

The fair will be held at Independent Options, 67 Chester Road, Hazel Grove, SK7 5PE.

Independent Options is a registered charity with almost 40 years’ experience of removing the barriers that society places in the way of people with disabilities and those who love and care for them. It currently provides support services to over 600 children and adults with a range of disabilities.

The Stockport-based charity aims to empower people with disabilities so that they can take control of their lives, achieve their aspirations, and live life to the full.

Established in 1977, Independent Options prides itself on providing a person-centred approach, giving its users control over the care and support they receive.  It works with people who have learning disabilities, mental health needs, autism, acquired brain injuries, and also physical disabilities.

Kevin's Story

Kevin uses Independent Options’ Short Breaks service. His Mum, Jude, tells of how the experience has helped her family.

“Having a disabled child totally changes the dynamics of family life. With all the meetings, hospital appointments and such it can be draining on everyone. When Kevin is at Hallfield guest house I am safe in the knowledge that he is with staff who genuinely care. I also know that he always has a great time and he can do what he chooses to do safely – and without his Mum there too! To have this service is so valuable as it gives me as a parent that time to do things I can’t when Kevin is at home, and I don’t feel guilty leaving him because I know that he really enjoys his time there with the staff and other guests.

“I adore my son and would not change him or his disability as then that would not be Kevin, but to have these respite breaks is wonderful for both of us as it means that I can recharge my batteries too. A service like the one offered through Independent Options is genuinely priceless.”
