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.

The Raft Foundation relies on an incredible network of colleague / volunteers, as well as corporate, community and faith groups supporting and actively taking part in the organisation and delivery of our foodbank service to the community of Rossendale.


We welcome the active participation of any individual or organisation who can help us sustain as well as growing our network of support.


At this time we are seeking additions to our food delivery teams. This will require you to have your own vehicle with appropriate insurance and be available for deliveries on either Tuesday, Thursday or Fridays between 10.00 am and 12.00 noon.


If you would like to get involved or just come and meet the team then please complete the form to the right and it will be picked up by our coordinating team and we will get back to you.


Alternatively you can come and see us in action at our distribution centre at Hardmans Business Centre.
