What started as a group of mainly unrelated people wanting to try something different, has evolved into a self-supporting, volunteer-led, Preston-based social enterprise aiming to inspire, engage & support others locally and around the world.
Global Amigos is the umbrella company name for various North West activities that currently receive support from over a dozen dedicated volunteers. We receive no external funding; all monies are generated through commercial activities such as Dirrty Harry’s & from businesses choosing to advertise in Podio Magazine; the most effective way to advertise to Preston commuters, visitors & residents.
Volunteer-led, we all share similar passions & benefit in a host of ways. Want to be part of it? Get in touch to explore the possibilities.

We are a group of local volunteers who have been supporting many members of the local community, predominantly Asian female ladies, with their personal, social and welfare development needs and providing an opportunity for them to meet and discuss their issues. We have about 3-5 volunteers actively engaging with the local community. As more women have gained awareness of our services there has been greater demand and we are now seeking to formally establish the group with a Constitution and as a NOT FOR PROFIT organisation for the benefits of the local community.
We are active in Pennine and Central Lancashire as well as North Greater Manchester and are keen to expand our services and provision to a wider area.
We have worked mainly with those in an unpaid carer’s role as well as supported those with confidence issues to develop themselves to become more active in their communities and seek employment and economic activity opportunities.
