About Us

Unique Enterprise CentreKYP is a leading community/ voluntary organisation, which has been established for 35 years. We are an independent charity dedicated to the development and economic regeneration of the communities of Rochdale. Our ethos is one of community empowerment, whether that is through enterprise, employment or training. Our motto is “Investing in People, Developing Skills”. KYP is an accredited ISO 9001, IIP, Positive about Disabled, and Matrix organisation, and is also an approved City & Guilds, EDI and Pearson training centre.

We are dedicated to helping individuals obtain the services they require to meet and fulfil industry and personal needs. We offer a high level of practical experience, know-how and a network of industry contacts, so our clients gain the finest learning experience possible. We deliver Apprenticeships, Skills Support, Pre-employment, GCSE and Integration programmes.

In line with our aims, we provide an on-site Day Nursery (Little Gems) as well as an Elders Day Care Centre, effectively removing two of the largest barriers to employment - Child care and Adult care. For those seeking self-employment as an alternative, KYP offers free business support services to residents of Rochdale and also provides Managed workspace, conference and training facilities for new and existing businesses.
