About Us

We are a network of community gardens and friends of open spaces covering the whole PR postcode. We provide bulk buying discounts and a monthly network meeting for the 34 members to attend and share their experiences and their ideas. We loan tools and equipment. We help communities to improve their environment. We provide training in horticulture so that communities and individuals can grow their own food and plants.

We have 4 sites from where we promote physical and mental wellbeing through volunteering in horticulture. Following the principles of social therapy in horticulture, we build esteem and confidence.

Our volunteers are diverse. The youngest is 14 and the older is 86. We have SEN groups and individuals, retired people and people who are seeking employment as well as people on long term sick or with disabilities preventing them from working.

We create surplus by delivering training, facilitiating projects and selling plants.

About Us

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle daily with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction.

At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home; our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency.

Above all we seek a transformation in housing policy, including investment in homes people on low incomes can afford – an investment that has been missing for decades and from all political parties, so that now the human cost has become intolerable.

At Shelter Lancashire we have been working in the community delivering specialist housing, debt and welfare benefits advice for over 20 years. We are committed to improving the lives of those in our community by creating systems change.
