So what is

One Stockport?

About One Stockport


One Stockport is a growing movement that celebrates and promotes the community response we have seen across the borough, born out of the Covid crisis.

Working in collaboration we can build a better future for everyone through supporting the local economy, connecting communities and promoting health and wellbeing.

Our Aims

To begin with we are focusing on three key aims in Stockport

Over the past weeks and months, the coronavirus has impacted on every one of our lives.

But as well as negativity, we have seen many positives:

  • We have seen communities rally together
  • We have seen more support for local businesses
  • We have rediscovered our local area by cycling and walking
  • We have used the opportunity to embrace digital technology
  • We have experienced cleaner air

We have a unique opportunity to harness our new-found sense of community and equality and become united as One Stockport.
