Working with you

We run community activities and employment programmes to help people become more socially and economically active. Thanks to all the community group volunteers who help to make it happen.

We have long understood that successful neighbourhood regeneration requires more than providing homes, and investing in people can benefit thousands across Bolton each year.

In this video we look at some of our community investment, employment and enterprise highlights from 2016 – 2017 with help from some of those involved.

We brought PopUp Business School workshops to Bolton, giving people the building blocks to start their own businesses.

Bolton Urban Growers work across Bolton helping people to grow their own food in both their own garden and at community growing hubs.

Our UCAN centres help with job searching and CVs, information on training, free use of computers, money advice, and much more.

The Willow Hey Community Project is an outdoor facility that brings people together, helps them to develop a range of skills and addresses food poverty.

The Tonge with The Haulgh Big Local Partnership continues to deliver projects that represent the needs of the area.

The volunteers at the Fusion Centre in Tonge run a number of community activities and services, which have been “life-saving” according to some people.

Holiday Kitchen combines summer holiday play and learning about healthy eating for families.

The film finishes with a look back at previous Erasmus+ placements. We give people an opportunity to work in Romania and Hungary to help people less fortunate, gain new skills and take away life changing experiences.
