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.

We are inspired every day by the commitment and tenacity of those who support children/young people in schools or in extracurricular enrichment centres in a voluntary capacity to gain vocational experience. Today’s job market is competitive and we aim to provide those people with that extra knowledge to ensure that they are successful in gaining suitable employment. We also believe that in this area of high percentage house repossession, suicide, divorce and unemployment, the children involved are very often the ‘forgotten’ factor, needing specialist support to help them cope with personal issues and raise attainment, therefore not perpetuating the ‘cycle of deprivation’ any further.
As a company we run 1 day and short courses to enhance the professional skills of those who support children/young people with SEN, additional needs, mental health issues and those who live in areas of high socio economic deprivation, in any kind of voluntary capacity eg youth centres; schools; uniformed organisations. We also work with and support older teenagers and adults in a personal capacity, who are possibly out of work, retired or still in education, who are grieving or struggling to cope with a loss, the breakdown of a relationship or similar.
