Introducing our new Lancashire wide #Upskilling project
We’re proud to be working with a number of partners to deliver fully funded staff development to SME’s across Lancashire who are making a positive difference to their communities.
Our #Upskilling project is for organisations who employ less than 250 staff, contribute positively to holistic health and well-being of communities and/or individuals therein and can meet de minimis regulations. Check us out on the Boost support directory here or get in touch with the team for a discussion about how we can help.
To find out more, visit our website or get in touch with Callam Barnes on 07947 934750.
You're all welcome to attend our Macmillan Coffee Morning on Thursday 23rd September, for a brew, a chance to network and learn new things and enjoy some delicious cake. We're starting in the Boulevard Centre Conference Room at 11.30am and continuing at our Community Hub.
There are also a host of prizes to be won via our fundraising raffle. Purchase you tickets from the Admin Office in the Community Hub.
