Who We Are...

Castlemere is based in the very heart of the community, owned by the community, managed by the community and run by the community, making it the obvious choice for the community.

The Centre is very well used by all ages and recognised locally as one of the busiest centres in the Borough of Rochdale. The centre offers a variety of services to the community of Rochdale with a particular focus on BME communities.

Castlemere Community Centre is managed by an unremunerated Executive Board of Trustees made up of industry leaders from the public, private and voluntary sector. The Board enjoys a list of members from a diversity of backgrounds, yet share a common vision regarding how the Castlemere Community Centre should develop.

"10 years ago I and two other founding directors began the work to deliver a Vision for our community. We began and led the campaign to purchase a derelict run down building with no future. It was in the centre of a community that felt abandoned, with none of the
community facilities for young and older residents that were so desperately needed.
