We aim to inspire people to live healthier, happier and creative lives through combining cultural and leisure services.

We work in schools, community locations and with partners to deliver education, projects, festivals and events which inspire, engage and support our diverse communities and make Rochdale an exciting, creative place to live, work and visit.

We love working in Rochdale and with its communities. It’s rich history of ideas and innovative social reform inspires us every day to challenge ourselves to innovate and ‘do things differently’ and that has inspired how we work.

Recent events have demonstrated that our services are needed more than ever.

We are looking for talented, passionate and well connected individuals who can help to steer us through the next challenging, but exciting phase of our plans. We are inviting you to consider the opportunity to influence and shape a vital charity that delivers far reaching benefits right to the heart of our communities.
