Spring into Action is a community interest company based in Accrington in East Lancashire. We set up in 2012 and have a vision of an inclusive society where people with learning disabilities can fully participate.
Our aims are to provide opportunities for people with learning disabilities to engage in activities, volunteer within services and find employment. We aim to raise awareness of the ability of people within the wider community, and raise aspirations of people with disabilities to achieve more.
Our services and activities over the past ten years have been developed and delivered with people with lived experience and include: sports and arts projects, volunteer training including Sports Leaders awards; delivery of inclusion workshops to businesses and other organisations. We also run a friendship and dating agency, bringing people together.
Lucy Hamlin represents Selnet Member Spring Into Action and is currently a Director on our Board.
Kizzy Felstead of Spring into Action won our Social Enterprise Volunteer of the Year award in 2022.
