Walthew House is a local charity providing practical and emotional support for people in Stockport living with sight or hearing loss.

The charity was founded in 1882 and is named after its founder John Walthew, a former Mayor of Stockport.

Today, we support 400+ local people each week through our range of services for both adults and young people. We rely on donations and fundraising to support our services.
