The previous system of sub websites within Blackpool4me.com has been discontinued. This means that information is now more streamlined, easier to search and provided in a more consistent format. Community organisations can still create their listings for both their service provision and for any events or activities they may be organising. To do this you just need to register to create your account and once approved your information can easily be added and amended. We will also show when the information was last updated so that people know the details provided are up to date.
The Blackpool Resource Directory is owned by Blackpool Council. It has sections that relate to Adults, Communities and Adult Health and Social Care.
Once your account has been verified you will be able to add details of certain services and events to our website. Any submissions made are subject to Blackpool Council's moderation requirements. Your service must relate to adult social care or health and wellbeing, including free or low cost community activities and support people living in Blackpool.
We do not generally accept submissions for commercial activities that aren't social care related unless you register for our safe and secure directory which is a chargeable service. Verification of your account will signify your agreement to these terms.
