Below is some advice which may help you to view or navigate our webpages.

Viewing Our Website

To help people with visual impairments we have included a handy tool at the top of every page to increase or decrease the main page font size. The tool looks like this A- | A+

If after using this option you are still having trouble viewing this website we would recommend the use of software called BrowseAloud that can be downloaded and installed to your computer. The software can then be used not just on the Healthy Stockport website but other websites and with other applications on your computer.
