What is the Fylde Coast’s Responsible Business Network?

The Fylde Coast’s Responsible Business Network is a network of businesses committed to supporting their local community.

The network has been created, and is supported, by the Blackpool Pride of Place partnership, which is a flagship initiative of Business in the Community – HRH The Prince of Wales’ Responsible Business Network.

Their Mission:

They aim to build a network of responsible businesses along the Fylde Coast who will:

  • Be the best they can be in delivering social, environmental and economic sustainability across all areas of their business
  • Join with other businesses to bring together their collective strength and be a force for good in the local community

Who can be involved?

The Fylde Coast’s Responsible Business Network is free to join and is open to any business who wants to contribute to the local community, whether that’s social, environmental or economic. It can range from a few hours volunteering - to taking on an apprentice - to mentoring start-up businesses.

The type of contribution you make is entirely up to you!
