ABOUT US

Lancashire Women is a leading charity for women and girls in Lancashire with over 8500 women accessing their services over the past year and 31 active volunteers supporting delivery of their services. Their vision is where all women and girls in Lancashire are valued and treated as equals. Lancashire Women empower women and girls to be able to transform their lives by bringing them together to: find their voice, share experiences and understanding, develop their knowledge and skills and challenge stereotypes and misconceptions about them… so that they can have choices in becoming the individuals they want to be.

Through their network of female only centres, located across the county, they can help Lancashire Women:

  • Improve mental health and emotional wellbeing
  • Get advice on managing money, benefits and debt
  • Improve skills, knowledge and gain employment
  • Meet others and build friendships
  • Life safer, happier and more positive lives

“My life has turned around because of the support I’ve received. I feel that a light bulb has been turned on.”

ABOUT US

DanceSyndrome is an inclusive arts charity that aims to inform and empower people through dance. Our trained dancers, both with and without learning disabilities, work alongside each other to offer community dance workshops for anyone who wants to improve their physical health and personal wellbeing. As well as offering community dance workshops across the North West, we also provide dance leadership training to empower people with and without learning disabilities to become Dance Leaders and to gain the knowledge, skills and ability to co-deliver inclusive dance sessions. DanceSyndrome also perform live at a variety of public and private events across the UK, including community showcases, festivals, fundraising events, national conferences, AGMs, universities, schools and even parties and weddings! DanceSyndrome opens eyes. A performance allows us to share with you how powerful dance can be and allows us to challenge perceptions and demonstrate ability rather than disability.
