Your Trust (Previously Link4Life)

Rochdale-based Link4Life has announced a change of name that will see it become ‘Your Trust’ following the reopening of key leisure facilities and cultural destinations in the region.

The Link4Life name and brand has been a mainstay of Rochdale since the charity was founded. Many of the borough’s leisure and cultural facilities are operated by the charity, including Touchstones Museum, Hollingworth Lake Adventure & Water Activity Centre, Heywood Sports Village, Littleborough Sports Centre, Rochdale Leisure Centre, Heywood Civic Centre and Middleton Arena.

Some of the activities may be suspended due to COVID-19, please check our website for future sessions.

It’s so good to be back to Active Living outdoor exercise classes.

Cycling Projects - Wheels for All

Cycling Projects is a national charity which promotes cycling through a range of successful community engagement programmes that give people the opportunity to cycle on a regular basis; through help, support and guidance.

We have become increasingly involved in cycling related training, bringing cycling to disabled people.  We also encourage people with poor health to take up cycling and work with excluded communities to help them make cycling part of their lives.

Our vision is to ensure that cycling is accessible to all. Our two nationally acclaimed initiatives are Wheels for All and Pedal Away. See details on the Cycling Projects website.
