Community Facility Awareness were united through NCS

A group of Preston teenagers are launching a campaign to tackle key issues in and aroundĀ Ingol.


Among their main aims, ‘Community Facility Awareness’, the group’s campaign name, are pushing for reduced stigma on mental health, to get young people off the streets, and promote social mixing in the area.

United through the National Citizen Service, a national youth program that promotes social unity and action, the group of 12 local teenagers are passionate about reducing these key issues which they identified in the area. According to the group, some of theseĀ issuesĀ have affected them personally and have driven them to make the campaign a local success.

They aim to work with Ingols community centre ‘INTACT’ to deliver a social day for children aged 5-11 years old and adults with no upper age limit. The group of teens plan on delivering fun and games for the children, and an evening of quizzes, bingo and other activities for the adults.


The event takes place at INTACT centre on 49 Whitby Avenue, Preston on Friday 5th August. The children’s event starts at 10am and finishes at 12pm. The adult event is from 1-3pm.

Food and refreshments will be available at the centre with a Ā£3 entrance fee to cover the running costs.
