WELCOME TO ROCHDALE CONNECTIONS TRUST

RCT is a community based charity which works with young people with the aim of putting their lives back on track by offering practical and emotional support.

The Charity was started by a group of Rochdale Youth Magistrates in 1998 who noticed that many young people appearing before the Court, did not have a school to attend. This often led to exclusion from society in general and a loss of self-esteem and self-worth on the part of the young person.

RCT’s aims are to connect young people with adults who can help them return to education and training, but even more importantly, perhaps to raise their individual self-worth and confidence which will lead to inclusion rather than exclusion.
