Welcome to our Social Enterprise Page

 'Trading for the benefit of local people,
rather than the benefit of shareholders & owners'
 
Under our Social Enterprise Development Initiative we have continued to support enterprises established under the 3-year programme as well as helping to establish new ones.  These include the One Planet Shop, Woody, support for Hyndburn Used Furniture Store (HUFS), the Hyndburn Bees project and establishing a development group for the Community Benefit Wind Turbine proposal.  One of the key points has been establishing Woody as a 'Community Interest Company'. Woody has now started to to tender for, and win, woodland management contracts in Hyndburn. See the Menu on the left for more information on each of the projects.
