New community website for Pendle

A website featuring a directory of services for Pendle residents is now live.

The website, which has been co-produced with members of the community in Pendle, provides a ‘toolkit’ of features and local resources where you can find information on services such as; mental health, GP access, dental, education & training, as well as local news and events happening in Pendle.

Dr Asif Garda, GP Clinical Lead for Pendle at East Lancashire CCG said:

“This is a fantastic new resource for the Pendle community and developed with the help of local residents. I feel many of my patients will benefit from the REAL Pendle website which provides an array of information and services available in Pendle. It is a great tool to support the self-care needs of patients.”

The sections on the website include:

• Advocacy and politics
• Culture and heritage
• Education and training
• Faith and religious groups
• Local health services such as, GP surgeries, dentists and pharmacies
• Sport and recreation
• Support and welfare groups

The website was funded by NHS East Lancashire CCG and created by REAL (Rossendale Enterprise Anchor Limited) who is involved in developing organisations and services that support the Voluntary, Community and Faith Sectors (VCFS). They also created the REAL Rossendale website, which is a directory of services for people in Rossendale.

Matt Wiseman, Project Manager for the REAL websites project said:
“The REAL websites are being maintained with the help of local volunteers and organisations who are passionate about making their communities a better place to live and work. The websites form a network of community information across East Lancashire.”
