Welcome message from Councillor Janet Emsley

​​​​​​​​Councillor Janet Emsley. Rochdale Borough Council is committed to working with and supporting our Armed Forces Family. I am the council's lead representative for the Armed Forces. The Armed Forces Team at Rochdale is proactive and constantly looking at new ways we can support the Armed Forces Community.

Projects like the Rochdale Veterans Breakfast Club and Rochdale Hornets Wheelchair Rugby Team are some of the ongoing projects we support. We also work closely with charitable organisations and community groups who support the Armed Forces Community.

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.

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.
