Community Cohesion

We want our communities to flourish and enjoy life in all its fullness. But, of course, every community is different, and the changes people are looking for will be different too.

It’s why the Together Lancashire believes in bringing people together, and helping them work together to improve things in their own neighbourhoods. We help communities decide what they want to do, and then we draw on the contacts, knowledge and expertise of the Together Network to create individual projects that will bring about positive change.

Near Neighbours is recognised across East Lancashire as a bridge builder in communities. Lynne Mitchell is the lead worker and has had great success in bringing people together through projects like Real People Honest Talk, as well as providing small amounts of funding for projects which break down barriers.
