About us:

We are a fully constituted group of regular volunteers who have regular contact with our local service partners to discuss what each offers in the area.

We then help people make the best use of those services. We manage Barker Street Community Centre, off Eden Street, which plays host to many different services. Each Thursday OL1-Oldham delivers The Bread andn Butter Thing service from the Centre. Find out more about the service here:

Mission Statement:
OL1-Oldham - Not just another residents group! 

‘OL1-Oldham works closely with many agencies to help local residents and the wider community understand how they can get the most from public services and together

help play their part in creating a healthy, safe, proud

and flourishing community’.




What does
OL1-Oldham  do?

  • We freely support local people who are struggling with things that affect their lives and give them useful contact details to inform them of the help they can expect from each of our partner services.


  • We talk to local services about individual and collective problems local people tell us about and ask the services to actively assist with those problems.


  • We talk to local people about how each and every one of us can help to keep our areas clean, safe, healthy and happy. We inform our communities about our partners and our own many different schemes and initiatives and actively encourage others to contribute, agree, and take part.


  • We manage Barker Street Community Centre where we meet regularly and develop projects and initiatives to help support local residents and our partner agencies.


  • We work voluntarily, as good neighbours who are committed to caring for our community.

We are currently updating our former Community Agreements and are excited to soon be publishing the first of a
a brand new series
of Community Charters.
