Burnley

We work with individual churches, and in SW Burnley, chair the South West Burnley Together group. Finding resources, networking, and making links between organisations both within and without the Borough.

We have been active in Burnley supporting individual churches, faith leaders and groups of churches/community organisations. SW Burnley Together has developed into a useful network, sharing current information, supporting each others' activities, producing a neighbourhood plan and campaigning against withdrawal of resources. The SW Burnley Together facebook page shares a lot of information for this group. We are currently working on how adverse childhood experiences impact on communities and how we respond, as well as the positive impact of peer mediation.

Food poverty and insecurity is a significant strand of our work - the Feeding Lancashire Together project has distributed slow cookers to organisations in Burnley, to teach cooking skills to their groups. Grants have also been given for storage equipment.

We want to put you on the map! We are extending our googlemap of foodbanks - here's the link. We are working towards including all social action projects and events held in and around Burnley.
