About Us

Unique Enterprise CentreKYP is a leading community/ voluntary organisation established in 1979 and has since been providing a variety of services to the communities for over 40 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 community and personal needs. We offer a high level of practical experience, know-how and a network with long established partnerships.

In line with our aims, we provide an on-site 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 business support by providing excellent managed workspace for new start of growth companies.  KYP also provides a bi-lingual Welfare Advice service for those that struggle to access the support they need due to language barriers.

We have state of the art conference and training facilities as well as community facilities for residents, community groups and other organisations for hire.
