People and Communities
People and Communities is not a formal meeting group but a taste of some of the vast range of community focused activities and events which take place across the borough. It also records the annual One West Lancs Forum in which the board, strategic public sector and private organisations meet with the West Lancs Voluntary, Community and Faith sector to celebrate our community and work together to influence cross sector priorities which will deliver benefits to the West Lancashire community.
- Community Food Growing Project: West Lancs Community Food Growing Project aims to get more people involved in growing their own food and eating more healthily. It works with local communities and schools to set up community food growing initiatives and provide help in finding the land (and funds) that might be needed.
