Gift92 helps those in real need to build a stable home. We help people with limited finance and receiving state benefits to furnish a property. The charity has been doing this since 1992.
Many of those we help have moved into an empty property and do not have the funds to furnish it. We supply the essential furniture and household items to help them and their family create a home. We collaborate with several local agencies and charities to enhance the household items clients receive through our service.
Our work is supported by generous members of the public who donate usable furniture and household items, we are always in need of more due to demand. The furniture collected has enabled us to help over 750 people in 2018.

The 180 Project is a community recovery programme in Lancashire and is one of the first of its kind in the UK. It is unique, effective and unlike anything else for those recovering from addiction problems. We use sport [an adapted CrossFit programme] combined with education, mentoring and peer support to achieve total wellness so participants are physically, emotionally and mentally well and socially connected.
180 gives focus and hope to offenders in the system and those recovering from addiction. It also has the potential to reach those people who are at risk of falling into this cycle as early as possible. Through this we aim to break the cycle of substance abuse, crime and prison to help rebuild lives. The long term goal is to impact positively on criminal re-offense rates, improve local communities and to assist individuals in gaining education, volunteer and employment opportunities.

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.
