Over recent weeks we have had to make some changes to the way we work. Being able to continue to deliver our TPA service, whilst ensuring the safety of all of the people who access the TPA, and that of our teams continues to be our top priority.
Thankfully, we have been able to adapt our usual approach of face to face contact with video calls whilst offering regular telephone contact. This means we have been able to stay in touch with everyone who was already in contact with the TPA, and we continue to take on new referrals.
We have been working hard to ensure people have access to essentials like food and medication and we will continue to work with partners to provide practical help in communities across Stockport.
Pressures at home can escalate whilst we are all isolating and we are seeing an increase in people experiencing domestic abuse. We work with people who are experiencing domestic abuse, and those who want to change their own behaviour to develop healthier relationships.
As always we are here to help people feel more connected. For people that are feeling lonely, we are able to offer regular contact with someone from the TPA team or through our trusted partners and volunteers in Stockport.
Community groups have struggled to meet up – these groups play such an important part in connecting people and improving health and wellbeing. We are helping by facilitating virtual groups online so that people can stay in touch and support each other.
We continue to work in partnership with organisations and groups across Stockport to ensure that we can co-ordinate resources and ensure people can access the help that they need.
Digital solutions are a great way of keeping in touch with family and friends whilst we stay safe at home. We are able to help people access digital skills and equipment to help them stay connected. We continue to update our website and social media with resources that people may find helpful during these challenging times, it is great to see how many people are accessing these resources.
We will keep our website and social media up to date with our latest developments.

Welcome to The Prevention Alliance
Stockport TPA is here to provide a service to anyone that wants to make change happen in their lives. This might be something like getting some advice or being given contact details, or it might be something that requires a bit more time, like working out a plan of how you want to overcome difficult or overwhelming things in your life that you think will help you to move on.
We provide early support for anyone who is vulnerable due to their health, wellbeing or situation, with the aim of preventing things from getting worse and enabling you to work towards independence, whatever that may look like for you.
Its all about your:
-Connection to your community
Our Keyworkers will coach you to develop your own strengths, relationships and abilities and develop new ones as you work your way towards the kind of life that you want and deserve. Working together we can create lasting, positive change. Our Stockport town centre hub is open between 9.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday at 45 St Petersgate SK1 1DH (opposite the Coop bank) or you can get in touch on 0161 474 1042 or visit our contact page for a map and more ways of reaching us

New advice pages
We are in the process of updating our online advice and information services to give you up to date and useful local information, regardless of whether or not you are currently, or have been, working with TPA. There is advice from our Keyworkers here, with videos and links to local and national organisations.
We have produced the following guides so far, with more to come soon. Get in touch and let us know what you think.
What you say
The service is what you say it is – it is preventative and you helped me to plan for the future, and I will be able to manage other situations when they come up.
Thank you, I honestly would not have got this far without your help.
You gave me the voice I needed. I needed you to stand next to me, I didn’t feel I had anyone on my side.
TPA stood by me, when we first met I was in a dark place with no hope and I felt heard.
The support gave me strength, more confidence and has helped me to make good choices.
There are now many possibilities in front of me, changes have happened, mostly positive.
This service has been, in no small way, a life saver. Absolutely amazed at the service and the help I have been given. I will take all I have been given and grow further.
