Millgate Arts Centre is a member of the Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation (GMCVO), the voluntary sector support organisation covering Greater Manchester. The GMCVO vision is of a strong, diverse and influential voluntary sector in Greater Manchester. It supports local voluntary action by local people by providing specialist support, knowledge, voice, infrastructure and innovation, working in partnership with other support organisations and with the public and private sectors.

The Millgate Arts Centre is operated on a long term lease from Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council.

First held in 1957, the Saddleworth Festival of the Arts aims to bring world-famous artists, rising young stars and award winners to Oldham, all adding to the rich cultural mix. The Festival covers a wide range of events, indoors and out. As well as opportunities to appear on the Festival programme, there are extensive commercial opportunities for businesses to get involved.

Saddleworth Parish Council is the administrative body for the area. Consisting of elected representatives from each village or locality, its aim is to promote, maintain and improve Saddleworth.
