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.

Isla's Story

Isla is three and a half years old and has been coming to the Children and Family Centre for around two years with her family.

At first Isla had no diagnosis, but it was clear to her parents that something was different from an early age as she had a short attention span and would have regular crises if other children came near her. Her speech was also delayed and she didn’t speak or make any verbal noises until the age of three.

By coming to The Centre, play around other children was normalised for Isla as she began to get used to other children being around and she loves coming to The Centre now. She enjoys the freedom to play in the garden or inside with the toys and crafts. Isla responds well to the staff and volunteers at The Centre and is confident to ask for help.

“Isla has speech and language delay but one of the first words Isla spoke was when she shouted “Messy Play!”, so we knew then how vital it was for her to come here.”
