Coronation Street

Coronation Street have been consulting the Foundation about a hard hitting storyline exploring social intolerance and prejudice, leading to an unprovoked attack because of a character’s alternative identity.

It’s been great to work with the Corrie team and they have involved Sylvia at every stage. Keep watching and more news soon!

New Foundation Website Launched

We have been delighted to be working with SQ Digital in creating a new website for the Foundation. We can make it much more current and can better reflect what we are doing. Hopefully, you will find out everything you want to know about the Foundation, and it will be a really easy way to respond to your enquiries. Message us and let us know what you think.

We need to say a very big thank you to the Community Foundation For Lancashire who awarded us £5000 for the project. We couldn’t have done this without them, and we are truly grateful.

Education and Training Now Delivered Digitally

For the last six months, the Foundation has been developing and piloting online educational programmes, to make sure we can still work with organisations despite schools being closed or external trainers not being allowed in venues. The sessions have worked amazingly well, and it has been heart-warming to see that the emotional impact we know we make in person, is still being felt in the digital sessions.

Even after social distancing is over, we will still be able to offer this training if it is more convenient for you. Technology has certainly helped in getting people together from diverse locations and these benefits will surely stay. We do love sharing a room with our audience though and are looking forward to when we can do this again. Please get in touch if you would like to book education or training with us.

The Foundation’s award last year of £55 000 from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by the National Lottery Community Fund was essential in giving us an income while we developed new ways of working. As all of our income had stopped simultaneously, this funding was a lifeline. Thanks again to the National Lottery Community Fund. The new skills and new ways of working that we’ve developed, will continue to benefit those who use our services long into the future.
