Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service provides fire and rescue services to the one-and-a-half million people living or working in Lancashire, on behalf of the Lancashire Combined Fire Authority.

National Association of Retired Police Officers (NARPO). We are a member organisation representing retired police officers of all ranks and police widows from police forces throughout England and Wales. We offer a range of services to members including advice on pensions and other issues affecting the welfare of our members. NARPO is a branch based organisation formed in 1919 and there are four Lancashire Branches: Burnley, Lancaster and Morecambe, Blackpool and Preston and District. For further details and to join please visit our national website.
The Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) is a national body which represents Police Officers up to and including the rank of Chief Inspector. We are a representative body, similar to a Trade Union but without the right to resort to industrial action. Our statutory remit is ‘Welfare and Efficiency’. Each of the 43 Forces has a joint Branch Board [JBB] which is made up of 3 individual Rank Boards (Constable [CBB], Sergeant [SBB] and Inspector [IBB]). If you wish to know more about the Federation and why it’s so vital to have collective strength for workplace representation, please visit our website. We are still fighting hard for your rights today.

The Blues & Twos team offer you ethical savings and affordable loans, which means that you can save as you borrow! With a non-profitable credit union, we put the focus on ensuring that you are always provided with the best service, rather than maximising profits.
