Charity Brookfield Spaceplace and cooperative digital platform NewsSocial have collaborated together on the work so far.

UCLan Project Coordinator Alina Belousova said: “We believe this is an essential work in terms of understanding local assets, and how they can be leveraged for community wellbeing.

“We are starting the second phase of our project, during which we’re looking to upgrade our website, develop a mobile app and solicit even more community support.”
