ABOUT US

Blackburn Rovers Community Trust (Registered Charity No. 1117122) is fully committed to offering all members of the local community access to the highest quality programme of grassroots football, education, inclusion initiatives and awareness projects to encourage off-field participation, success and enjoyment using the crest and brand name of Blackburn Rovers Football Club.

The power of football to engage, enthuse and motivate people irrespective of age, gender and ethnicity is now recognised on many stages. As a vehicle through which community cohesion in its broadest terms of ‘narrowing the gap’ in health, education, aspirations and opportunity can be addressed, the local draw of Blackburn Rovers and the unrivalled power of the brand to bring additional credibility cannot be underestimated.

ABOUT US

As a not for profit, social enterprise, Travel Assist has designed the business model on the foundation of their two major social objectives, which are;

(1). Making transport accessible for those who experience difficulties reaching mainstream transport.

(2). Creating and sustaining long term employment opportunities.

From the very start, Travel Assist has based all business decisions on the ethics of our social objectives, which is to provide opportunities, equality and respect. However, as the business has developed, Travel Assist has recognised that it has a responsibility to look at the impact the work carried out by the organization has on the environment. Therefore, a third social objective has been added:

(3). Sustaining responsible use of energy to minimalise the impact on the environment.

Counselling West Lancs

Contact: Denise Hare

Tel: 07740 463 311

 

Email: counsellingwestlancs@gmail.com

 

ABOUT US

Our service will operate independently providing Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, mediation and life skills. Our work will be sourced through local CIC’s, networking, care providers, GP’s and community hubs. As counsellors our services are universal to the needs of anyone who feels they would benefit from counselling. This could either be on a 1-2-1 basis or group sessions. Often, we find counselling is sought after particularly by individuals who are on the margins of society and have multiple, complex needs. It is well recognised that these groups have high levels of mental health amongst others. The company’s activities will provide benefit to our local area, where there is a high level of social and economic deprivation.
