Oakwood is a day time service which offers a wide range of activities to adults with learning disabilities. An integral part of the Rossendale Trust, Oakwood aims to support every individual to reach their full potential by offering choice and the opportunity to achieve positive outcomes within an environment which encourages social interaction and integration into the local community.

Oakwood is used not only by tenants of Rossendale, but also by the wider community who enjoy taking part in our activity programme. There is a broad range of activities and informal learning opportunities to choose from helping individuals learn new skills, gain structure to their week and meet new people. Dedicated to providing individuals with an inspiring environment in which to develop confidence and independence, Oakwood offers a modern, person centred service which is worlds away from the more ‘traditional’ day services!


Oakwood sessions are mostly funded by the local authority, alternatively they can be purchased through direct payments or privately.  To enable us to offer such a varied range of things to do, we rely on money from all our fundraising efforts! Each year we have a programme of fundraising events which enables us to purchase new equipment and supplies to greatly improve the experience for everyone at the service.

Activity Timetable

Our range of activities are arranged in four month blocks so anyone wanting to attend simply chooses the ones they wish to take part in and then we provide you with a timetable for that four month period.

Individual activities take place in half day sessions:

  • Morning session 9.00am – 12.00 noon
  • Afternoon session 1.00pm – 4.00pm

 Some of our activities are full days 9am-4pm.
