About us


Spotland Community Association is a registered charity which works with disadvantaged & deprived communities of Rochdale - providing support, advice & guidance around welfare rights/ benefits, education & training and social inclusion activities to improve the overall quality of life. The charity started back in 1996 and has continued ever since. We work with all age groups delivering projects and services for the youth & adults through our educational programmes and training .

We currently run Sewing Classes, Fitness Classes, a Health Advice Drop In and a Job Club. We have started our Smart Hub for all your social media needs and continue to run our reading room. Accessing mainstream services is a huge problem for some of our service users often leading to further problems and hardships. Our focus remains to help with targeted, 1-2-1 support for all.

Our Services

The groups we work with have increased over the years now covering refugees/asylum seekers, lone parents, people who have married into the UK and have come over as a spouse, young offenders, ex-substance users, BME community and domestic violence victims. We have always tried to create an open-door policy for all and have always focused on eliminating multiple barriers and help individuals cope with high levels of deprivation and unemployment in the area.
