- In order to help people boost their wellbeing we offer resources in 4 specialist areas; storytelling, nature art, nature activities and yoga and mindfulness.
- By engaging with We Be Kids children and families will be actively living the 5 ways to wellbeing: Get Active, Be Mindful, Think Community, Keep Learning and Practice Kindness.

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.

Beanstalk Business Support CIC has recently been established to help businesses to be stronger, more sustainable, and more profitable. We provide business support, training, and mentoring to help start-ups, not-for-profit organisations, self-employed individuals, and small business owners (SME’s) manage their business and administrative processes successfully while ensuring that communities benefit from the businesses within them.
Small businesses are the backbone of local communities; they provide character and individuality that reflect a town’s personality. Business owners and employees usually live and work within their communities. Building successful businesses inspire a climate of pride, creates a thriving local economy with local jobs, and secures strong community bonds.

WAYS TO TRADE WITH THIS SOCIAL ENTERPRISE
Queens Market is essentially an ongoing community project whereby we support the fledgling businesses and encourage growth of these businesses into the local community and beyond. The moment staff and visitors walk through the door, they are welcomed into the family – the support is ongoing. Boasting a large hall, many events and clubs can take advantage of this space, with profits going back into further projects which evolves with the changing times. We have ambitious plans to help the local and wider community, such as with transport, odd jobs, volunteering, resolve social isolation and become the forefront of community services needs to support the social services.
We have approached Lancaster & Morecambe College who have shown interest in renting some of our space and working with Queens Market Morecambe to provide learning opportunities.
