    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.

    About Us

    Groundwork Cheshire Lancashire & Merseyside is both a charitable trust and a social enterprise that has been working to build more sustainable communities across Cheshire and Lancashire since 1985 and Merseyside since 2012. We do this by helping people and organisations to create better neighbourhoods, to build their skills and job prospects, and to live and work in a greener way.

    Our vision is of a society of sustainable communities which are vibrant, healthy and safe, which respect the local and global environment and where individuals and enterprise prosper.

    By this we mean communities where people can work if they want to, where people are not living in fear of crime, where young people are valued and can realise their potential, where people are healthy and can afford to make healthy choices, where neighbourhoods are places where people want to live, and where communities – be they neighbourhoods or business communities – are more resilient.

    In order to manage our activities in a way that delivers against our vision we have set 6 core objectives which we feel are key components of a sustainable community. All of our work will contribute to at least one of these objectives.

    1. We will help communities to become more active and resilient
    2. We will help to build greener, safer, stronger neighbourhoods
    3. We will help young people realise their potential
    4. We will help those furthest from the labour market to find work
    5. We will promote improved health and wellbeing
    6. We will reduce carbon emissions and tackle the impacts of climate change

    About Us


    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.
