In 2003 BNENC secured funding from The Neighbourhood Nursery Fund and a purpose-built nursery costing £300,000 was built, the nursery provides full day care in a modern safe and secure nursery with 10 qualified and trained staff providing the care. BNENC is the umbrella organisation for the whole community and has 12 voluntary & community groups affiliated to it. Our affiliated groups consist of:
Tenant & Resident Groups
Child & Youth providers
Churches & Schools
Crime Prevention groups.
Anti-poverty & Welfare Rights Groups
Victim Support & Parent Support Projects
Training & Strategies
BNENC provides its groups with Training on fund raising, personal and group development, volunteers training, developing strategies, IT & Computers etc. Breckfield and North Everton are inner City Communities with a major lack of resources and a high rate of crime, high unemployment, poor housing, poor health etc.
BNENC and its Volunteers have identified a number of strategies that will help reduce or combat the problems faced by Breckfield residents. Income deprivation also means that there are a large number of social problems experienced by this community. As well as supporting 12 local groups & organisation we are currently delivering services for:
0 to 4 year olds via our neighbourhood nursery programme – delivered via our Nursery Partner Community & family services
Training & Ongoing Support
The above work is carried out by a Director of F & D, a Director of Operations and a Community Development Worker with a team of trained and dedicated volunteers whom BNENC recruit from the local community, BNENC provides them with training and ongoing support.
BNENC’s ethos is to help increase the skills and abilities of local people and to assist them into Jobs, Education and / or Training. We are currently working with local developers, the City Council and other agencies in the physical regeneration of the community.
