Building Better Opportunities

Age UK Greater Lancashire CIC is a leading delivery partner in the Age of Opportunity, a Lancashire-wide project that is part of Lancashire’s Building Better Opportunities (BBO) programme, one a nationwide programme which brings together funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF) to help tackle the poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in England.

Age UK Blackburn with Darwen and our partner Age UK Lancashire jointly own Age UK Greater Lancashire CIC.

Age of Opportunity




Age of Opportunity engages people who are 50+ and who have low or no skills, to support them in moving towards employment. The project is focused on the barriers to training, work and employment, and addressing these barriers.

Age UK Greater Lancashire’s team of Navigators are the first point of contact for participants under this project. We work with participants to understand their interests, aspirations and barriers to work or training. Each individual is then directed within our partner network for specialist support that will help them to engage in training and work readiness activity.
