Our story

As Mayor of Stockport's Charity of the Year, Beacon Counselling Employees and Volunteers are abseiling for mental health down Stopford House on Saturday 17th April 2020!

Cllr. Dean Fitzpatrick, Mayor of Stockport said “This is an exciting opportunity to join me in my fundraising efforts, in aid of an incredible cause that supports people suffering with mental and emotional distress.

The effects of Covid-19 has brought upheaval and uncertainty to all our lives; nationally there is evidence of an emerging mental health crisis. Through isolation and stress, a lot of people are struggling right now, with depression, anxiety, bereavement & loss, and through very tough economic circumstances. There has never been a more important time to focus on mental health, ensuring people can be resilient - Beacon is a critical part of this urgent response, for the people of Stockport.”

The latest government rules indicate that the abseil event is hopeful; on the day of the abseil it will comply with the law and the advice of our Council Officers

Raising essential funds for The Mayor of Stockport’s Charity of the Year, Beacon Counselling.

Beacon exists to improve the lives of people experiencing poor mental health, supporting 2,500 children, young people, and adults each year. They provide a range of therapy services, including free counselling to the people suffering with mental and emotional distress who cannot afford it.
