Together we thrive
At the Together Trust, our vision is a society where people thrive because they are valued within their communities. Yet the road ahead for millions of people lies tangled and difficult to climb.
But they’re not alone.
For 150 years we’ve been championing and caring for people with disabilities, autism and complex health needs. And providing life-changing support for looked-after children and care-experienced people.
Today we’re one of the North West’s leading disability charities. We help children, adults, parents and carers, delivering individual care, support and education to thousands of people each year.
To champion the rights, needs and ambitions of the people we support - they are at the heart of everything we do. We stand by them and we work together for change.
In today’s complex social care landscape, our strategy remains simple – to shape our services to fit the people we support. Whether you’ve been navigating social care for some time or you’re new to this, we’re here to help.
Life-changing care starts with the individual. We take the time to get to know the people we support and create care, support and education programmes shaped to match your needs and ambitions.
From home visits to classroom one-to-one, our services are designed with flexibility in mind offering direct support where and when it’s needed. With over 40 different services, you might be surprised at all the ways we can help you.
We’re called the Together Trust for a reason—collaboration is in our DNA. From designing services with the people we support to working with like-minded organisations, together we thrive.
We’re rooted in our local Stockport community, offer regional services throughout the North West, and work hard to deliver a national impact – you could say we’re local at heart but we think globally.
The issues faced by the people we support are universal, and the only way for our communities to flourish is to enable everyone to thrive. That’s why we’re generous with our time and resources, sharing insight with local authorities, likeminded organisations and international social care communities.

The Together Trust is governed by a Board of 13 Trustees. All of our Trustees are volunteers. Our trustees set our strategy and work with our leadership teams to shape our direction and budgets.
