Welcome message from Councillor Alan McCarthy

​​​​​​​​Councillor Alan McCarthy. Rochdale Borough Council is committed to working with and supporting our Armed Forces personnel. I am the Council's lead representative for the Armed Forces. I carry out my role with a passion and really want to make a difference if I can. We have many exciting work streams and events which I will keep you updated on.

Whether you are currently in the Armed Forces or you are leaving the armed forces you and your family often need advice on issues including health, education, housing, training and jobs. The council is here to support you and your family with these issues.

On 28 November 2012 the council and its partners signed an important community covenant.

Please read the covenant and when you receive services from any of those who have signed it consider whether we have met the standards of commitment.

We need your help to identify and deliver sustainable services. If you do encounter difficulties or negative experiences in accessing services from the council or any of our partners we want to hear from you. Please contact us through the following dedicated email address

We are really keen to hear from you to ensure that by working together we can make a difference.
