Lancashire County Council's Communities Team use their skills and experience to work with the people of Lancashire to support projects to strengthen communities and improve wellbeing. We support projects with realistic goals that, encourage people to be healthier and improve their local environment.

We are particularly keen to work with:

  • Projects to support Health and Wellbeing, where they are led by local community members.
  • Improvements to green spaces, particularly in areas with limited quality green space.
  • Food-growing and healthy eating projects, particularly where they are supporting food insecurity.
  • Improvements to community buildings.
  • Training and development support.
  • Projects which tackle loneliness and social isolation

If you believe that your organisation and project activity match these criteria and would like our assistance, please contact:
