Blackburn and Bury-based PM+M – the chartered accountancy, business advisory and financial planning group – is launching a brand-new community initiative called Positive Impact that aims to increase the firm’s investment in local projects across East Lancashire and Greater Manchester.

Applications from charitable and grassroots organisations are now open and can be made via

Positive Impact is a dedicated Corporate Social Responsibility project that will build on PM+M’s long-term commitment to helping the communities in which it operates. Over the past few years, the firm has provided direct financial support to – and volunteered at – a raft of organisations including Blackburn Youth Zone, Pendleside Hospice, Bury Hospice, East Lancashire Hospice, Blackburn Foodbank, Bury Porch Boxes, Burnley Clarets in the Community and Children Services in Blackburn, Burnley and Bury.

This new, more formalised structure, which is led by a group of team members, aims to build on that work, whilst at the same time driving employee involvement and empowering them to help select which charities will receive financial donations, time and expertise.

Helen Clayton, managing partner at PM+M, said:

“We are incredibly excited to launch Positive Impact. The enthusiasm and commitment that all of our team have shown – along with their willingness to get involved – has been fantastic. This programme is a testament to our commitment to not only provide exceptional services to our clients, but also to making a positive difference in the communities where we live and work. By enabling our team, and increasing our investment, we are confident that we can drive meaningful change.”

Tara Maynard, financial adviser at PM+M and part of the Positive Impact team, added:

“We want to support causes that make a real difference in the East Lancashire and Greater Manchester areas as this is where we primarily operate and where most of our team live. We now want to get going so I would encourage any charity that might need our help to get in touch. I am really excited to see what we will achieve over the coming months.”
