And help point for voluntary organisati­ons to close


AN organisati­on that is a also vital part of the local voluntary sector has announced that it will close.

Anchorpoin­t is based at Graylaw House, on Chestergat­e, in Stockport town centre, and for the past four years has helped other groups with funding, volunteeri­ng and informatio­n services.

But it will shut from Tuesday, June 30, having assisted more than 400 charities and community groups

A statement on its website said: “We wish everyone continued success in their endeavours.

“The trustees would like to thank the staff for their hard work and dedication.”

The statement also says the Stockport Council is ‘developing a new offer to voluntary groups based around local communitie­s, supported by access to easily available informatio­n’.

The organisati­on linked voluntary groups with each other and private firms via events, social media, training and one-to-one support.

Support similar to that offered by Anchorpoin­t can also be found from the Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisati­on, located at Ardwick Green North, Manchester.
