About Us

Welcome to MCRC - Multicultural Resource Centre


There was development of heritage project which produced a bi-lingual booklet. Awards 4 All grant also gave us to start our Health project in December 2016. We also had financial support from Rochdale Council to organise literature activities and poetry events. Our Health Information Shop project is highly appreciated by local communities.

Financial austerity remains a challenge and although MCRC has moved into surplus, we are grateful for the enormous amount of voluntary assistance that makes this possible and allows us to provide valuable services to our communities.

Meet our management team

Most businesses think that product is the most important thing, but without great leadership, mission and a team that deliver results at a high level, even the best product won't make a company successful.
