In the heart of the carers community
Our brand new community facility is officially open in the centre of Accrington!
The ground floor of our double fronted property on Blackburn Road has now been renovated and transformed into a brand new community facility which has a charity shop, information and support hub, community café and garden, for the benefit of carers, the people they care for and also the wider communities in Accrington.
This new facility has multiple purposes of enabling the charity to be more sustainable in the longer term, assisting local communities with improved access to services and support alongside identifying, recognising and supporting carers. Any income generated through the centre will be used to fund the daily and ongoing upkeep and development of the facility alongside enabling us to expand our services and support for carers.
It is hoped that this facility will bring carers and the wider community together whilst providing continuous community benefit by proving an array of services and events for carers and the local community including community events, drop in sessions, workshops, support groups, luncheon clubs, affordable food, gardening, workshops, training and development opportunities ….. the list goes on and on….!
