Community Information for Burnley

This site provides news and information about community services, events and volunteering for people living or working in Burnley.


In the directory of services you will find ‘not-for-profit’ organisations and services provided for the benefit of Burnley citizens.  Some of these will be small, local groups supporting a particular cause.  Others will be a nearby branch of larger organisations that may have a wider presence.

You can search in a number of ways:

Category       A-Z list      Keyword      Location

If your group or organisation is not yet included in our directory, or if some information needs adding or changing, please let us know.  There are several ways to contact us.  Just follow this link!


A calendar of thousands of events from in and around your local area.  Not just one-off events but meetings and activities that run on a regular basis.  Type a keyword into the calendar to see what is available or browse through the calendar to see what is going on on a particular date.


Find out what is happening in local organisations in your local area.  Let us promote the activities you are involved in.  Follow us on Twitter @realburnley or on Facebook @realburnley

Does your community group or organisation have a message that they want to get out there?  Do you have a service or activity that you want to promote?  Perhaps you would like to spread the word about a new campaign or appeal, or maybe you are just thinking about starting up a group and want to find like-minded people to join you?

Share with us what you are planning and we will help get your message out there.
