The Calico Group – Providing quality services that make a real difference to people’s lives.
The Calico Group consists of innovative charities and businesses working together to make social profit, rather than financial profit, the driving force behind their wide range of high quality services.
Calico defines “social profit” as the positive difference they make to people’s lives, across all the communities in which they work. They create social profit by developing innovative services, and harnessing the opportunities of their unique group structure.
Health, Care & Support – Calico provides a range of aspirational programmes to help you improve your physical and mental wellbeing, and to stay safe and independent. They can provide life-changing support with a range of issues, from homelessness and independent living to help with drug and alcohol dependency.
Skills, Training & Employability – Calico works with a host of organisations to deliver a range of services across the North West that provide housing-related support, tackle worklessness, and give information and advice. When it comes to helping people in our region into work, apprenticeships and further training, Calico has an excellent reputation and a wealth of experience.
Housing – Calico owns and manages approximately 4,600 homes in Lancashire. They aim to make a difference to the quality of life of individuals and the wider community in which they work. They provide accommodation for families and older people, as well as supported housing and services for homeless people.
Construction & Development – Calico is committed to developing new and affordable homes across the region, and creating new and contemporary communities in which people are proud to live. They also provide a full construction service to help clients achieve their targets through employment, building and regeneration. Calico champions local communities, driven by a desire to improve the lives and futures of everyone involved in the work they do.
