Stockport MP Ann Coffey visited the National Association for People Abused in Childhood (NAPAC), whose national support line is based in Stockport.
NAPAC is a national charity which offers support to adults who suffered any type of childhood abuse – physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect. NAPAC’s support line is totally confidential and is free from landlines and mobile phones is 0808 801 0331.
During her visit, Ann met some of the busy NAPAC volunteers, who receive extensive training before they take calls. The demand for the survivor support line and e-mail support service has risen substantially over the past three years, with 89,960 call attempts last year.
MP meets computer coders of the future
Stockport MP Ann Coffey visited Priestnall High School in Heaton Moor, and spent some time with pupils from Year 8 who have started using the BBC micro:bit to learn about computer coding.
The Charnwood Nursery is special in Stockport. As a Christian charitable Trust, Charnwood has led the way in the provision of nursery education where children with disabilities learn and play together with other more able children. Each child is valued and respected as an individual.
I have made many visits to Charnwood over the years and was very privileged to have been invited to their 50th Anniversary celebrations last year.
