Local charity, Action Together is launching a winter support campaign, ‘Winter in Rochdale’, to offer and signpost a range of key information and support available to strengthen communities across the Rochdale Borough through the Covid-19 pandemic and winter.
Christmas will be very difficult time this year for many families in Tameside, particularly those living in poverty. In response to these unprecedented times our Tameside Toy Appeal is needed more than ever, and we hope with your support we will still be able to provide children and young people in need with a small gift this year.
This year we will run our donation offer differently:
#WednesdaysWeekly is Action Together's weekly training during lockdown and possibly beyond. The idea is that we meet for short, informative trainings followed by a Q&A or the chance to share your thoughts.

Charities, voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations have worked so hard this year, supporting us, our families and our communities through this crisis.
