We’re currently redesigning our website and part of that includes reorganising some of the information on the site to make it easier for people to find information which is useful and relevant for them. We’ll be adding information for professionals on a separate page. In addition to this website we also have a private online community on Facebook and a number of public social media accounts.
Monthly Meet Ups
We hold monthly meet ups on the second Wednesday of the month between 7.00 pm and 9.00 pm. These meet ups are strictly for parents and carers only. We currently meet at The Dog and Partridge (272 Buxton Road, Great Moor, Stockport, SK2 7AN)
Our newsletter is primarily a monthly reminder that we have a meet up that week, but whilst we have been holding our meetings online, we have also used the newsletter as a way to share the Eventbrite booking link with our parents. We currently use MailChimp to send our newsletters. We never pass email addresses, or any other information, to other organisations.
We have a Facebook page which we use to raise ADHD Awareness by sharing useful information. (We also post funny memes from time to time) We also use our Facebook page to share content about ADHD, Neurodiversity or SEND topics posted by other trusted sources.
We have a private Facebook group which is strictly for parents and carers of children with ADHD. This allows parents to chat to other parents in a private space, without sharing any of their comments with the rest of their Facebook friends. It is our little safe space on the internet, which is really useful if you would like some advice from another parent /carer or have had a challenging day and need to talk to somebody that understands. Only other members of the group will be able to see any conversations or information posted within the group. Our private group also offers the facility to ask questions anonymously.
As SPACE is run by a very small team of volunteers, our “business” admin can be a challenge. If you are a parent or carer, our closed Facebook group is usually the quickest way to get hold of a member of our team and a great way to access a supportive network of other parents.
We have social media accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Tik Tok and our name is spacestockport on all three platforms.
