"We were happy to leave our desks, roll up our sleeves and get mucked in to support such a worthy cause. Instead of pushing a computer mouse around we were pushing wheelbarrows and it made an interesting change."
Heather Brennan, Burnley Council
Corporate action day
The main office is open to all and whoever is in need, the team will always be happy to help. Everyone is kind to each other and help each other no matter what the condition or what disability someone has, everyone is there for each other.

I have for the last three years had the pleasure of engaging with the PLCF both professionally and personally. In addition to their community involvement I am aware of many worthwhile projects addressing issues around positive engagement with young people coping with various disabilities and health related problems.
I will continue to support the PLCF offering my services wherever possible. —Cllr. Gareth Frayling
Many worthwhile projects
Over the past few years I have had the pleasure of working with Burnley Food Links and more recently with Pennine Lancashire Community Farm, whose sterling work in restoring the allotments to their former glory has provided wonderful educational experiences for our children. The benefits for the children, their families and the community cannot be overstated, and were highlighted in our recent Ofsted inspection. - Mrs M Nearney, Headteacher, Stoneyholme Nursery School
they have successfully and professionally delivered a range of projects within their neighbourhoods, all of which have provided excellent and sustainable solutions to the issues raised by the residents.
- Bea Foster, Senior Young People's Worker
“Thank you very much for helping to get our garden growing in the right direction. You all worked tremendously and have done a fantastic job.”
Well organised session, with lots of fun activities that helped the students to remain interested. The Forest School is a fantastic learning environment.
