Who are we?

For over 30 years, Signpost has been working to improve the quality of life for unpaid carers in Stockport. We are a small charity and couldn’t do our work without the support of our volunteers.

From office work to walking groups, there are lots of ways you can get involved, which you can find here on the website or by getting in touch.

Volunteering at Signpost can be a great way to meet new people, help the local community, learn new skills and build your experience. We support the Community Champions initiative run by Sector 3, which is another route to developing your skills.

Who can volunteer with Signpost?

We have an inclusive volunteering policy at Signpost and welcome applications from everyone, irrelevant of background.

Do you have a special skill?

We’re open to hearing from volunteers who want to share their skills and interest with our carers. Let us know if you have any particular ideas.

Dear Friend and Supporter of Signpost

Like many organisations, we are experiencing increased demand for our services alongside reduced funding and donations. To enable our team to work as effectively and efficiently as possible, we have taken the difficult decision to close our phone lines from 1pm, Monday – Friday.

If you do call us in the afternoon, please do leave a message with your name, number and a summary of your enquiry. Our colleagues will be checking voicemails throughout the afternoon and will call you back as soon as possible. This will be within 2 working days. Alternatively, please email info@signpostforcarers.org.uk

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you in advance for your understanding.
