Adding value to Lancaster District

Shared Future LogoPowered By Shared Future CIC.       Visit our website to find out more about us

Lattice Works is designed to connect with other support available to the voluntary and community sectors and not duplicate existing services. We are working closely with Lancaster District CVS (LDCVS), Social Enterprise Lancashire Network(SELNET) and the members of the North Lancashire Social Enterprise network(NLSE) to fill gaps and add in extra support options. We are establishing a social enterprise stakeholder reference group to help guide our work.

Lattice Works is funded by Lancaster District Local Strategic Partnership (LDLSP). Delivered by Shared Future CIC, it seeks to provide accessible practical support, including where necessary small scale financial help.

LDLSP was dissolved in March 2012, and the programme was originally intended to finish in March 2013 but limited funding for Latticeworks continues until Autumn 2013.
