Welcome to The Raft Foundation
We are a charity formed as a community group in 2012 to serve and support the
community of Rossendale, Lancashire.
Our projects to date include the only Rossendale based foodbank service.
This has been achieved through the incredible support of our colleague volunteers, faith
and community groups right across Rossendale as well as from our amazing business community
who continually support what we do.
