Lancashire Community Finance is a delivery partner of the three Building Better Opportunities (BBO) projects in Lancashire, led by Selnet (the Social Enterprise Lancashire Network).

‘Age of Opportunity’ supports people over 50, ‘Invest in Youth’ supports 15-24-year olds and ‘Changing Futures’ supports people with multiple and complex barriers to employment. Over three years, these three specialist projects will help transform the lives of 3270 disadvantaged people. Based on their individual needs and interests, BBO will help them to overcome complex barriers and move towards work and training.

Building Better Opportunities is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF) 2014-2020, investing in local projects tackling the root causes of poverty, promoting social inclusion and driving local jobs and growth.

For more information about any of the projects, please contact us on 0344 561 1292.
