Fylde Coast Resilience is focused on making a difference by bringing the VCFSE, private and public sectors together, providing knowledge, information and support to help businesses and organisations make positive, powerful connections; to learn, grow and benefit from the expertise of others. We also welcome would-be entrpreneurs that are looking to start a business or community organistaion.

Unlike traditional 'networking' groups, we don't have time-consuming presentation agendas that prevent attendees from talking with each other. Tell any of us in the organising team what you need and we'll see if we can help you by making useful introductions, hopefully right there at one of our meetings. We don't expect referrals, set targets or make any demands from attendees. Together we intend to support our community, re-shape business and create sustainable, successful futures for us all. If this sounds like something you'd like to be a part of, contact us today and we’ll let you have full details of our events calendar.

Participation in our networking activities is open to EVERYONE, but is especially intended for:

  • VCFSE (3rd sector) professionals
  • Public sector representatives
  • Non-profit orgs, CICs, faith groups, charities, etc.
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Small business owners
  • Business startups
  • All other 'community oriented' volunteer groups and individuals.

There's no cost to attend, plenty of free tea and coffee, and no commitment required. Join us!
