Businesses Want to Provide Support and Expertise to The Local Community But Don't Always Know How to Go About Doing It
Community groups need more than just money, they need the expertise and experience only local responsible businesses can provide. We actively recruit businesses and community groups to join us so we can make that connection.
One Blackpool is a non-profit cooperative that encourages businesses to demonstrate their corporate social responsibility. We work across the Fylde Coast from Fleetwood to Lytham and cover Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre and membership is free, so there’s nothing preventing those in need from getting support.
One Blackpool helps bring money into the area and distributes it to local voluntary and community groups, some are quite small and some are quite large. We have been fortunate to win funding to support this work as part of a Big Lottery bid and we are looking to develop this programme over the coming months.
One Blackpool can help you match your objectives with community projects and social enterprises in the Fylde Coast area, by helping to launch your Business into the local community and to meet your Corporate Social Responsibilities through Corporate Community Investment (CCI).

One of the best ways that businesses can often help community groups is through Employer Sponsored Volunteering, where staff donate time and skills during work hours to tackle local social issues.
