The Families Health and Wellbeing (FHWB) consortium is a member based charity which enables a collaborative approach to service delivery amongst Lancashire VCF and not-for-profit organisations. The Consortium helps to bring organisations together in order to provide the best help and support to individuals and communities in the local area through strong partnership working.

The Consortium acts as a hub for its members,delivering a range of services for children, young people and families to collectively tackle issues that surround our community. We concentrate especially on those who are most in need and rely on the knowledge and expertise of our members to provide innovative services which improve the lives of our community and which meet needs of both individuals and families.


We will bring innovative solutions to create a positive impact on the lives of children, young people, families and the communities in which they live whilst challenging inequality and disadvantage - to enable them to meet their full potential. 


To create a successful Consortium which shares the same values, beliefs and principles and which will provide services which meet the needs of children, young people, families and the communities in which they live.
