Inclusion is a key area of our charity and our projects enable us to engage with some of the most hard to reach members of the community. We work with many people from areas of high deprivation in Hyndburn and offer them opportunities to participate in a number of projects. Our Kicks project sees us engage with the BAME communities and helps with social integration. We continue to increase engagement figures in this area to help transform lives and create a positive impact.

‘’I have been attending the PL Kicks sessions for two years now since I moved here from Poland. I didn’t really know anybody at the beginning but I’ve made new friends and now I volunteer on the sessions. Accrington Stanley have really helped me settle in the area and I hope to work for them one day.’’
