Our Lancashire is a community project funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner. Usually we support and connect community groups, however, the current public health crisis has changed the the way we work and we are currently working with groups and public services across the county to assist in the response effort to keep people safe.
We want to capture all the good work that groups, organisations and businesses are doing to support people in the community at this difficult time, and look at how we can support them by linking in with public services and identifying those people most in need.
If you offering support or assistance, have set up or are setting up a group in response to the public health crisis or are offering services that can assist those most affected, we are asking you to add this information to the Our Lancashire website ourlancashire.org.uk By adding this information you will help build a central hub for information across Lancashire enabling the community and public services to find support that will help those that most need it, quickly and easily.
A few examples might be:
- Are a group or small shop that is able to delivering groceries
- Are a community group now running sessions online?
- Are you are a charity able to offer specific advice
Listing your information is simple. Visit www.ourlancashire.org.uk and click “Join Our Lancashire” in the top right corner, input your details and you will be sent a verification email – sometimes this may go to a spam folder, so check there if you do not receive it.
Once you have verified your email, you need to visit the website and log in, from your dashboard you can then “Create A Group”. This is where you will tell people about who you are and what your offer is. If for example it is an online keep fit class or a shop delivering food, be sure to make that clear in your text (so people don’t think they have to visit your location) however we will check each listing to make sure it is suitable, relevant and clear and will publish once we have verified it.
