Welcome to The Raft Foundation We are a constituted community group formed 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.

Tuesday 20th August Great day at The Raft Foundation new home at Hardmans Business Centre unpacking another generous donation from St. Anne's Church Edgeside and packing up parcels for seven local families to be delivered to this evening. Pictured are Joseph, Jamie, Paul, Alison and Eileen getting stuck into some rewarding work. New items to add to our urgent list are washing up liquid, crackers and knitting wool (for blankets).
