SWLICAN or ICAN

For 30 years South West Lancashire Independent Community Advice Network has continued to work as a grass roots organisation providing quality advice and support on Employment Law, Welfare Rights and Money Advice.

From our IT suite we also provide training and support on Basic IT, as well as providing CV writing assistance, job search and much more.  Our services are free, accessible and client friendly and are delivered from our base in Digmoor CRC and at a number of outreach venues.

Our Vision

South West Lancashire Independent Community Advice Network (SWLICAN or ICAN for short.) is a driver of social inclusion through the provisions of accessible resources, training and social activities for individuals and local Voluntary, Community and Faith organisations in West Lancashire.

ICAN’s basic philosophy is the empowerment of people to be active citizens who are able to help themselves, either by accessing services or volunteering and employment opportunities. We want people to be able to solve their problems themselves by providing them with the necessary life skills, confidence, resources and facilities to do so.


Our Aims

South West Lancashire Independent Community Advice Network is a grass roots organisation which aims to provide quality advice and support on Employment Law, Welfare Rights, Debt, Health and Safety, plus access and support on ICT, Job Search and Interview Techniques.
