ABOUT US

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.

About Us

Twice nominated as Creative Company of the Year, Tick The Publicity Box – specialists in  media, marketing and PR – gives clients in the third sector a professional image and assists them with all aspects of promotion from design and printing, buying media space, staging events and presentations.

The social enterprise also provides services to local authorities and the NHS which, in turn, provides a surplus which helps various charitable groups.

To us, the key to a successful social economy is for CICs to keep focused on building their business, making it sustainable and winning more contracts. Providing them with a professional image and meaningful marketing is critical to delivering that success.
