The Outreach Programme

Our Community Outreach Programme is the ideal entry point into Arc, with accessible small group courses based in neighbourhoods across Stockport.

Each Community Outreach session lasts for 2 hours and takes place every week for 10 weeks. The creative courses are led by experienced community artists and are designed to help participants build in confidence, relax, increase their wellbeing and feel more a part of their local community. All abilities are welcome.

We are currently taking referrals for the next block of courses due to start in April and May 2017.  The courses will be taking place in the following areas:

Location: Offerton
Venue: Offerton Community Centre, Mallowdale Rd, Stockport SK2 5NX
When: Monday afternoons

Location: Adswood
Venue: Abacus Adswood Children’s Centre, 120 Garners Lane, Adswood, Stockport, SK3 8QW
When: Tuesday mornings

Location: Edgeley
Venue: Edgeley Chiildren’s Centre
When: Wednesday mornings

Location: Heaton Norris
Venue: Heaton Norris Pavilion, Love Ln, Stockport SK4 1JA

Most participants begin their involvement with Arc by joining a 10 week Outreach course and then progress onto the longer 6 month Challenge Programme.
