The Rossendale Trust - Oakwood


Oakwood, part of the Rossendale Trust in Macclesfield, is a bespoke service which offers a wide range of informal learning and leisure opportunities to adults with a learning disability.

With over 16 years’ experience, we are committed to supporting each individual to reach their potential. We do this by offering choice and opportunity, within environments that encourage social interaction and integration into the local community.

Whether you want to use Oakwood as a way to learn new skills and meet new people or as a stepping stone to formal education, volunteering or a work placement, our personalised service can support you along the way.

The activities we offer are horticulture, woodwork, IT and photography, arts and crafts, music, swimming, cookery, cycling, keep fit, day trips, walking and an outdoor experience activity based at Rudyard Lake. Our sessions run from 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm.
