Sandon House is a Community Centre based in the heart of Heywood. It is run and maintained on a totally voluntary basis without any funding from the local authority. There are luncheon clubs on Monday, Wednesday Thursday which offer home cooked meals for reasonable prices together with entertainment and activities to promote social inclusion.
Sandon House has undergone a massive regeneration project with funding raised by volunteers and has rooms and facilities available for hire for functions such as children’s parties and small social functions
Why the community needs us
We provide an inter-generational energy efficient centre for community involvement to: decrease isolation; provide help to people in need; improve sociability; improve employability skills; improve health and wellbeing; and reduce financial hardship

Our impact on the community​​
During the last couple of years we have had a continuous rise in people using our service, the outcomes have been demonstrated by verbal feedback that the friendliness and companionship to the older people has improved their lives, volunteers have gained skills to help them with future employment and fundraising events have become an enjoyable and affordable activity for intergenerational residents of Heywood

Sandon House Remodernising Revitalising making the centre a centre for the community
Thousands of people lined the streets of Heywood for the annual Heywood 1940s Day with hundreds dressing the part in 1940s clothing - it seemed the whole town had turned out for the day.

The Armed Forces paraded, and amongst other attractions was Backstep Boogie Dancers, an air raid shelter at Tillys Tea Room, an encampment on Hill Street, tanks, jeeps and trucks, a Spitfire, Hurricane and Messerschmitt, Naafi, Battle of the Somme activity, live entertainment at Heywood Magic Market, a tea dance at James Church Hall, vintage carousel, miniature train and 1940s entertainment in front of St Luke's Church.

Councillor Peter Rush said: "A fantastic turn out for a fantastic day. The whole community has got involved, including lots of Heywood businesses."
Leader of the Council, Councillor Richard Farnell said: "Heywood has pulled off another cracking event with thousands flocking to the town for an action-packed 40s day. 

"All credit to the hard work put in by the hundreds of volunteers who made the day so memorable and helped raise thousands for charity."
We cater for older people and people in need. Due to the high demands of the service we have expanded and now work in partnership with 'the Heywood homeless project' providing warm meals, we provide a base to help reform offenders, and ensure placements and availability for volunteers of all ages to help them gain skills and keep them in the employability market.
