SPACE Stockport was set up by a small group of parents and although the fashions and most of the individuals have changed since 2004 when they established the group, some things that have never changed include the fact that SPACE is still run by parents for parents.
The current team are all volunteers, who run the charity and manage the SPACE online community, alongside working full time and looking after their families.
Michelle – Founding Member, Medication Expert & Treasurer
Michelle is the team medication expert thanks to her day job as a Deputy Chief Pharmacist with the NHS. Michelle is one of the original SPACE Team members who set up the group back in 2004.
Claire – Chair, Digital & Admin
Claire uses her web development and digital marketing skills as the SPACE team’s resident web monkey. Claire builds and maintains our websites and social media accounts.
Claire originally came along to a SPACE meeting in 2005 after her daughter’s ADHD diagnosis and never left. At the time her daughter was on the verge of being permanently excluded from high school, but the amazing woman she grew into, gives Claire the opportunity to proudly show other parents the light at the end of the tunnel.
Claire first took the lead on SPACE’s digital life many years ago when the group’s old website disappeared from the internet and she managed to replace it. Since then Claire has created several new websites and is currently planning a change to this one.
