INSPIRING LIVES AND CHANGING FUTURES
It’s what we’ve been doing since 1886, in one form or another!
We passionately believe that every child and young person has the right to achieve their full potential, whatever their background or circumstances – and, as a result, we work with over 6000 children, young people and families in the North West of England every year. We work in the heart of communities – often in partnership with other organisations – to end family cycles of deprivation, drug and alcohol abuse, lack of self-esteem, youth crime, teenage pregnancies and broken families.
As a result, we help to strengthen individuals, families and communities so that children and young people can lead healthy and meaningful lives, with the opportunity to succeed in school, to grow up to enjoy healthy relationships, to have access to training and employment opportunities and to be successful in the world of work.

- Community Futures
Contact: Denise Partington
Tel: 01772 717461
Community Futures is a registered charity (702233) and company limited by guarantee (333713). Our legal name, Community Council of Lancashire, was adopted over 40 years ago to enable us to become a Rural Community Council. This provides us with a unique role in supporting rural community life in Lancashire.
Most of the work we do is rooted in our very first actions as a support agency. Our initial hands on support for unemployed men and their families in Manchester, the flag ship Brentwood House Recuperation Home for Mothers (which also gave refuge to Jewish families fleeing Poland) and an abundance of self-help programmes in some of the most deprived communities in Lancashire all helped to build our credibility and reputation for the work we do today.
Not a lot has changed. We make organisations, individuals and communities better.
This can be better at what they do themselves or for others, but ultimately everything we do has this as a goal. We see evidence of our achievements all over Lancashire, from the community volunteer we supported to take on her own services, to the community that is thriving because we saved its Playgroup.

- Lancashire BME Network
Contact: Naz Zaman
Tel: (01254) 392974
Lancashire BME Network (LBN) is a recently formed entity, resulting from the merging of Lancashire Women’s Network (LWN) and Lancashire BME Pact (Pact) in 2014.
Having worked closely over their respective histories on a number of programmes and initiatives, the boards and members of each felt it appropriate to formally merge the two bodies in recognition of their complementary natures and common goals to support local marginalised communities. This also allows for better use to be made of existing resources in face of significantly increasing demand from both local communities and referral agencies.
LWN were formerly known as Lancashire Wide Network for Minority Ethnic Women and were established in 1996 as a result of Fair Play seminars looking at poor levels of economic activity amongst BME women. The Pact set up in 2003 after identifying a need amongst BME groups and organisations for specialist capacity building support. LWN were the only organisation in Pennine Lancashire to support BME women in a ‘joined up’ service and address the holistic wellbeing of each woman it engaged with. The Pact were a well-respected representative body, with a track record of supporting infrastructure and BME groups around a number of thematic issues and needs.
Having collaborated on various projects and programmes throughout their respective histories, the Boards and Members of LWN and Pact felt it appropriate to merge the two entities to better achieve their shared goals of supporting BME communities:
both had a strong emphasis on user involvement;
the boards of both were comprised of current and ex service users, as well as other key political, social, and economic stakeholders;
both delivered community based learning activities supporting the development of BME communities.
The newly formed body is continuing and building on these shared successes, but is now able to make better use of existing resources through a more integrated management and strategic intervention structure in empowering marginalised BME communities. The merger has also resulted in a widening of our remit and LBN is now able to work with all genders.

- RELEASE into Victory
Tel: 07597 998169
RELEASE into Victory (RiV) is a support service for adults over the age of 18 who have experienced or are affected by Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA). RiV is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company established in 2013; based in Leyland, we operate across Central Lancashire. Fundraising for our services is through the Angel Gifts shop and crafts centre at 98 Hough Lane, and our training, engagement ad counselling support takes place in our dedicated workshop and counselling rooms upstairs.
As a service, Release into Victory have three action points:
- Raising awareness of Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA): The time has come to stand together and face the fact that CSA is a whole society issue, if we ignore the problem we are simply allowing a veil of secrecy for the abusers to hide behind and therefore giving perpetrators opportunities to continue with this crime against vulnerable children. By raising awareness of CSA we can send a message to perpetrators that as a community we believe that sexual abuse is unacceptable and will no longer be tolerated it in our society.
- Training for support services: Our multi-agency approach is a major component of our service. We work in collaboration with local support services by exchanging & sharing Information, skills and expertise. We are running sample sessions from our training room in Leyland from March 2020 for support agencies to find out more about this service.
- Support for survivors: Survivors deserve to be heard in a way that is best for them as individuals. People who have been abused often need and benefit from opportunities to validate their stories, speaking out about their experiences often leads to a sense of freedom and relief and can be very empowering. Our 1:1 confidential listening service, provides support to individuals to enable them to work out where they are emotionally on their own personal healing journey, and signpost on to professional counselling/therapy if required. We also provide access to our Peer Support Network.
