Who are S.P.A.C.E. Stockport?


Stockport Parents of ADHD Children in Education (S.P.A.C.E. for short) is a registered children’s charity which supports families who have children with ADHD. There is no charge for parents or carers to attend our monthly meet ups, join our private online community or attend guest presentations.


There is a lot of misinformation about ADHD, which can be confusing, especially for those with a recent diagnosis. Our monthly meetings are an opportunity to talk to other parents who face the same challenges in a relaxed and informal way.

Where can you find the SPACE Team?

 We hold a monthly face to face meet up from 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm on the second Wednesday of the month at The Dog and Partridge pub on the A6 in Stockport. The meet up is for parents and carers only and there is no need to prebook. The full address for the Dog and Partridge is available on our website.


Our website contains a lot of information about ADHD and includes links to a number of useful resources. It also includes links to our social media accounts where we share information about ADHD and other issues that may affect local families.

The SPACE team are volunteers, which means that we aren’t always able to respond to emails immediately. The quickest way to get hold of the team is often via Facebook.

ADHD Awareness Month


October is ADHD Awareness Month, but the team at SPACE raise awareness all year round. Due to the increased amount of social media posts and our work being highlighted in Tanya’s documentary, our October meet up was much bigger than usual and we were able to welcome lots of new parents. The information we shared throughout October is still available online.

What is ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopment condition, which is commonly characterised by inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. The term Attention Deficit can be misleading, as it suggests that those with ADHD have a lack of attention, when the issue is usually that they have difficulty controlling where their attention is directed, leading to inconsistent levels of attention for specific tasks or activities.


Having ADHD isn’t a bad thing, but it can bring challenges. Parenting children with ADHD can be tricky and hard at times, but with the right support, having ADHD can be amazing.


At one time ADHD was considered to be something that only affected male children, which we now know to be untrue. Unfortunately the stereotype of unruly little boys continues to affect the diagnosis of little girls and adults of both sexes, particularly those without obvious hyperactivity.
