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.

About Us

The 180 Project is a community recovery programme in Lancashire and is one of the first of its kind in the UK. It is unique, effective and unlike anything else for those recovering from addiction problems. We use sport [an adapted CrossFit programme] combined with education, mentoring and peer support to achieve total wellness so participants are physically, emotionally and mentally well and socially connected.

180 gives focus and hope to offenders in the system and those recovering from addiction. It also has the potential to reach those people who are at risk of falling into this cycle as early as possible. Through this we aim to break the cycle of substance abuse, crime and prison to help rebuild lives. The long term goal is to impact positively on criminal re-offense rates, improve local communities and to assist individuals in gaining education, volunteer and employment opportunities.
