March 2022

We have some exciting news! As spring approaches we are looking once again at new life & new beginnings...

            Since November 2021 Bacup Family Centre has been taking part in a number of meetings under the umbrella "Solutions" 

This has been a gathering of local residents, councilors, churches, local police, organizations and businesses with the aim of providing positive experiences for our young people. 

From these meetings we have now decided to move forward with providing a community youth provision for Bacup and the surrounding areas.

We are looking to source a Town Centre property. A building dedicated to children and young people that will be locally managed and used by the community. Providing activities, and a safe space potentially every day of the week. Our project will build on our existing befriending and mentoring scheme; allowing young people to learn life skills, build confidence, learn to make good choices, meet new friends, and much more.  Most importantly allowing our young people to be kids and have fun! The possibilities are endless!

 

We have a number of local people dedicated to this with between 20 & 30 people in attendance at our meetings and we are now at the stage where we are sourcing funding for rent, staffing and running costs. We are developing a 3 year plan with the vision that this will be a community led provision that will be around for many years. 

So how can you help?
