Fylde Together was created in September 2010 and is a partnership of voluntary, community, faith sector and social enterprises groups who are working together to develop the skills and tools required for the third sector to be ready for the times ahead. By sharing expertise, information and skills Fylde Together can be a strong voice and one port of call for all third sector groups and statutory organisations. It will provide a communication mechanism for all groups and will support the third sector in Fylde to reach their full potential. Membership of Fylde Together is free and has now increased to over 160 groups
