Voluntary Services Directory

 

The Voluntary Services Directory provides information about services available in the Greater Manchester Area. These services are generally provided by the voluntary sector or local authorities and augment, complement or follow on from care provided by the NHS. Availability of services may vary in different areas and some services may be applicable to certain conditions or be relevant for all.

If you would like details of your organisation to be included in our directory, please click here. If you identify any errors within the directory we would be grateful if you could highlight them to our administrator

Our user guide explains how to use the tool, which works best in a Chrome browser.

Select “Generic” within the specialties category below if you would like to include services that are not condition specific.

Rochdale Citizens Advice Bureau

What happens when you call the bureau

You will speak with an assessor who will identify the most appropriaate way for us to help you. This could be giving you the information you need to solve the problem yourself. Or it could be making an appointment to discuss your problem further - in person or by phone. Sometimes, we might direct you to a different organisation that is better placed to help you.
