About us

Action Together CIO is the infrastructure organisation for the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sector in Oldham, Rochdale, and Tameside. We connect people with what’s happening in their community, develop community ideas into action, strengthen local organisations, and provide strategic influence for the charity and voluntary sector. Membership of Action Together is free and open to any VCFSE organisation in Oldham, Rochdale, or Tameside.

Our work is organised into these core themes:

Action Together supports people to volunteer in their area, and assists local organisations in developing volunteer programmes, policies, and roles.

We provide support for VCFSE organisations to establish and develop, including specialist information, advice, and training for staff, volunteers and trustees.

Action Together works in partnership with other charities, infrastructure organisations and public bodies and collaborates on key thematic work. We also promote and advocate for the work of VCFSE organisations locally, and across Greater Manchester and the wider area.

We deliver locally-focused projects including social prescribing, Healthwatch Oldham and Healthwatch Tameside, Big Local Oldham, Miles of Smiles, and Rochdale Community Warehouse.

Action Together invests in the sector, and members can apply for funding from our grants programmes. We also provide support for groups seeking and applying for investment, and direct members to appropriate sources of funding.

Action Together is a registered charity (No.1165512).
