REAL exists to work with and for local communities.
Our Trustees are voluntary social entrepreneurs who are passionate about their local area and have long worked to make it a better place to live and work.
REAL stands for Rossendale Enterprise Anchor Limited. Our roots are in building a better Rossendale, working with volunteers and partners to promote Rossendale as a place to live and work in the best interest of it’s community. We respect and value all differences and seek to learn and develop alongside our partners. We work for and with those who have the will, wish and vision to do good things in the community.
Our award-winning ‘Connecting Our Community’ website started off as a resource for the Rossendale area but has now been funded by East Lancashire CCG to form a network of community information websites across East Lancashire.
The ‘Connecting our Community’ network of community information websites provides a ‘toolkit’ of features and resources to support community groups and organisations from the largest public services, to the smallest informal community support groups.
On these pages you can find more information about the ‘Connecting Our Community’ network. If you would like more information about any of our activities please do not hesitate to get in touch.
