The Mental Health and Wellbeing of both our staff and learners is very important to us here at Rochdale Training. We pride ourselves on taking time out to look after the wellbeing of one another with different events that we run whether that be for a morning, afternoon or a full day for everyone at Rochdale Training to look after their wellbeing.

If you feel like you need to talk to someone we have people on-site who can help you. Please see details below:
