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.

Established in 2014, Career–Nav CIC is a Community Interested Company based in Lancashire. This means we are a not for profit organisation and our core business is to provide careers advice and guidance to groups and individuals, especially young people aged 13-19+.
Our mission is to support individuals, young people, organisations and groups within communities to develop new skills and opportunities; enabling them to reach their true potential through careers advice and guidance interventions by signposting them to volunteering, community projects, training/learning and employment opportunities. We recognise that people living in poverty, or facing disadvantage, are much less likely to have a range of positive life choices which will hinder their ability to reach their potential.
Our team of Careers Advisers are professionally qualified to deliver bespoke training packages and careers guidance services to meet people’s needs and fill identified gaps. We would like to use partnerships, collaborations and links with Statutory and Third Sector agencies, private sector, community groups and projects to support our clients. In other words, we would like to work collaboratively with partners in a multi-agency setting to make a real difference to real lives.
