The Rochdale Fund for Relief in Sickness


The Rochdale Fund For Relief in Sickness is a local charity which was set up in 1903 to help any individual who requires help as a result of hardship caused by sickness, injury, disability or infirmity. This includes both physical and mental sickness, or deprivation of a nature likely to impair physical or mental health e.g. poverty or other adversity. 

To be eligible to apply for assistance the individual MUST live in the Borough of Rochdale. This includes Wardle, Littleborough, Middleton, Heywood, Norden, Birtle, Milnrow and Newhey, but not Whitworth. We are unable to approve any applications from national charities unless they are able to supply names of individuals they are helping in the above area. 
All awards are subject to the approval of the Trustees and requests must be supported by a letter from a recognised body such as Social Services, a Health Visitor, a Doctor or other appropriate authority. 

The Trustees may also make grants to other bodies, both statutory and voluntary, to assist them in providing equipment, services or facilities which may alleviate the suffering, or promote the recovery of, persons who qualify.

Registered Charity no. 222652
