Calico Enterprise have once again teamed up with Burnley FC in the Community to offer continued support to their tenants in the Burnley area.

Calico Enterprise works with a host of organisations to deliver a range of services across the North West to provide housing-related support, tackle worklessness and give information and advice.

Burnley FC in the Community deliver Sport, Health, Education and Inclusion projects that inspire, support and deliver change to the neediest communities.

With both organisations having a community focused approach to having an impact on people’s lives, a partnership approach to delivery on certain projects is a logical next step, explains Sam Howarth, Operations Manager for Calico Enterprise:

“We have a great portfolio of community based projects, with services such as Calico Interiors, Constructing the Future, and Calico Careers all having a positive impact on the lives of our tenants.

We believe in working with organisations to have a greater impact and by becoming Friends of Burnley FC in the Community, we are supporting a great charity who can help us have a greater impact across a number of our programmes.”

Sam and Chai Centre Coordinator, Jess Charlton, welcomed Burnley FC in the Communities Ryan Bradley and Social Inclusion Manager Rebecca Robertson to the Bean Good Café – just one area in which the charities will look to work together to develop.

“Both Calico Enterprise and Burnley FC in the Community deliver social impact projects that really do make a big impact across a number of agendas, including health and prosperity of local people.

We have a strong history of working in partnership with various organisations to grow and sustain our offer, and we are looking forward to developing a partnership with Calico Enterprise and the wider Calico group to do just that”, commented Ryan Bradley, Business Development Executive at Burnley FC in the Community.

Launched at The Bean Good Café at the Chai Centre, the partnership between the two organisations will see both charities explore areas in which they can work together.

“Bean Good at the Chai Centre is a community café, health and wellbeing leisure facility and social enterprise centre for the communities of Burnley. The café is committed to producing fresh Mediterranean cuisines in a Halal kitchen, with a healthy eating lifestyle ethos”, commented Jess Charlton, Calico Enterprise.

“We engage with over 500 participants per week on the Premier League Kicks project, amongst other outreach projects, so we certainly know of people who need a hot meal or hot drink and somewhere to just collect their thoughts. I’m sure that we can find plenty of ways in which our projects can support each other”, finished Rebbecca Robertson, BFCitC.

Calico Enterprise have made a donation of £1000 to the Friends Of Burnley FC in the Community scheme as a recognition of the work they have done with Calico tenants to date and to support that work to continue going forward.
