Increased demand for services in winter exerts severe pressure on local community, voluntary, faith and social enterprise organisations. Action Together helps strengthen local non-profit organisations, to enable them to support local people, by driving support for winter initiatives from the Tameside Christmas Toy Appeal to volunteering for local organisations.

Free water for voluntary groups in Rochdale!
During last year’s dry weather incident we purchased extra water bottles for our priority services customers.
However, the majority of these water bottles were never used by our customers and we don’t want them to go to waste. With the expiry date fast approaching, we are keen to put these water bottles to good use!
The water bottles are five litres with an expiry date of November 2019.
It would be a shame for all that water to go to waste!
