Rochdale Soup is holding a community meeting and training at the Rochdale Pioneers Museum for anyone that is interested in learning more about who we are, what are doing and what we are trying to achieve. This is open to the whole of Rochdale borough and we are looking for individuals, community groups and organisations with interest to help the local community
Soup's are a proven non-profit, grassroots community action model for social change with all money raised being given as a grant to the democratically elected winner.
We will be talking about how we came up with Rochdale Soup, the case studies we have looked at and how we have created our own model for Rochdale.
Soup also goes beyond financial assistance. Soup is also about creating a space that people can connect, share ideas, resources and where new networks of support and community can flourish. The aim is to create a community hub for Rochdale and encourage co-operation within the community.
