Freehold Community Group

Core Staff

Aleeza Rizvi- Project Coordinator

My name is Aleeza Rizvi and I have been involved in the project for many years. I am thrilled Freehold Community Group has continued to serve the community thirteen years after we were established.

As a Project Co-ordinator I am always looking for new ways to improve our services. I have introduced a wide range of community activities and am currently working on many new initiatives. My staff members and our community volunteers do their best to serve the Freehold residents.

We always plan our activities with the help and suggestions of the commuity and we encourage all to get involved in the planning and delivery of our services. All ideas and suggestions enable us to improve the community. It also enables us to work towards improving the quality of life in Freehold and other neighbouring areas.

It is vital for everyone at the Freehold Community Group to work closely with all  members of the community. We are currently running activities which suit the needs of children, young people and others in the community.

My working hours are Monday— Friday 9.00pm—5.00pm, I am based in 272 Olney, Freehold, Rochdale, OL11 4LQ and I can be contacted on 01706 718202 or email me at


Holly - Community Support Worker

I have been working for Freehold Community Group since January 2013 and have loved the experience. The work which the Group delivers has greatly benefitted the local residence over the last few years and the area has seen dramatic improvements with regards to safety and a safer environment for all the people of Freehold regardless of age, race, culture, education, religion and social background.

During my time with freehold community group I have organised or participated in community cohesion events and have also organised courses and information sessions. I have supported the community with issues relating to finance debt & housing and have always tried to promote the residents and improve the community.
