About Us

Blackburn Youth Zone is a 21st century youth hub located at the heart of Blackburn, open to young people aged 5 to 19 years old, aiming to change the prospects offered to young people in the area.

Uniquely, this is happening in partnership with young people rather than on their behalf.

As such, the Zone is led with the principle of ‘starting where young people are, going where young people take us’.

About Us

Spacious Place Engage Ltd is an innovative Social Enterprise. Specialising in engagement with some of the most vulnerable local people, we provide stability and support. Our aim is to assist individuals as they move from a point of genuine need into a place of hope and opportunity. Life can sometimes close in on people and surround them with restrictions. By focusing on an individual’s strengths and resilience, we help to create the space to journey away from need.

Spacious Place Engage runs a home delivery Food Bank in Burnley and offer wrap around support to try to help people not to need to use our Food Bank. We have developed our Community RePaint Scheme for several years to divert surplus paint from landfill and offer affordable paint to the local community. Recently we expanded to trade as SPE Furnishings to offer the paint and electrical goods and brand new furniture as a direct alternative to Bright House and other ‘rent to own’ high interest providers. We partner with PCCU the local credit union to offer weekly & monthly payment plans.

About Us

Power of Music through music therapy, singing and sharing music deliver planned sessions that incorporate peer support and social interaction. Our music sessions are designed to help people and their families living with a long term condition such as dementia. Meeting people and sharing music on a regular basis encourages peer support creating important networking where people come together to share their experiences. The Power of Music CIC already has two Community Choirs called the “Songbirds” in West Lancashire. The project is to develop “Singing For Health” sessions delivered by some of our choir members and our choir facilitator within residential and day care settings for people living with a long term health condition such as dementia, COPD, stroke and mental health. The Power of Music has already worked with the British Lung Foundation, Stroke Association and the Alzheimer’s society.

Our aim is to help and support people who can be isolated and dis-empowered as a result of the advanced stage of their dementia or other long term health conditions. These musical and personal interactions identify and build upon areas still intact in a person suffering the losses associated with the later stages of Alzheimer’s or, other forms of dementia or stroke such as memory, physical capacities, personality changes and accompanying loss of identity. Power of Music can deliver a “Singing for Health” programme designed to support care staff to develop their understanding of how music can benefit and support the emotional needs of people with dementia in the context of a person-centred approach to dementia care.
