About Building Better Opportunities

Building Better Opportunities is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF) 2014-2020, and is investing in local projects tackling the root causes of poverty, promoting social inclusion and driving local jobs and growth.

Three Building Better Opportunities projects in Lancashire are being delivered by a partnership of over 60 organisations, led by Selnet (the Social Enterprise Lancashire Network). ‘Age of Opportunity’ supports people over 50, ‘Invest in Youth’ supports 15-24-year olds and ‘Changing Futures’ supports people with multiple and complex barriers to employment. Services cover the whole county and delivery partners have been selected to meet the specialist needs of the people that will receive support.

Over three years, three specialist projects will help transform the lives of 3270 disadvantaged people, providing support tailored to their individual needs and interests to overcome complex barriers and move towards work and training. For more information visit
