Community Restart is a modern, forward thinking service that has co-production with service users at its heart. It is dedicated to improving quality of life, promoting opportunities and improving the outcome for people across Lancashire.

Community Restart works in partnership with people who access the service, carers, mental health specialists, employment providers, housing services, third sector agencies, sports and arts communities, education providers and environmental agencies to provide the opportunities and community connections for individuals to improve their health and wellbeing.

Access to the service is based on the complexity of the individuals’ employment and social inclusion needs, and not the degree and nature of mental ill health or symptoms. If you think ‘Community Restart’ can provide the support you require then please contact your mental health worker or contact us directly for information.their housing and is at risk of becoming homeless. We can also help people to set up their own support groups and meet likeminded people. In Blackburn with Darwen, there are Carer’s Support Staff too.

We grade our support, so as to maximise people’s independence, and we also offer signposting only for people who are able to start participating, but just don’t know what their options might be.  We are interested in building relationships with key people and organisations across the area, so that we can support places to be fully inclusive and, enable the people we work with to participate fully; building up their own natural supports and establishing friendships.

We map the area to build up detailed knowledge of what is going on out there, so we can be sure to inspire, motivate and meet the diverse interests of the people who are referred to us.

We currently support 15 projects across the whole of East Lancashire with more in development. Our aim is to support a group to become independent, member led and a valuable community resource. We will help to find a venue, sources of funding, set up a committee and constitution and continue to provide support until the members gain the skills and confidence to become independent.
