Leyland & Farington benefits from a high level of community involvement, with thousands of residents attending popular annual events such as the Christmas Festival, Leyland Festival, and the Taste of Leyland Food Festival. Many residents are also involved in community development projects.
The area has plenty to offer in the way of sporting and outdoor events thanks to the presence of Leyland Tennis Club, a Family Martial Arts Centre, Jump UK, Leyland Sports Association, Leyland Cricket Club, Active Lancashire, Leyland BTR FC (for under 11s, u13s, and u14s), and the Withnell Angling Club.
Residents contribute to their area through various groups including 'Friends of' associations for Farington Park, Shruggs Wood, Paradise Park, Farington Lodges, Hall Lane and Worden Park.
There are community centres in Broadfield (Base Community Centre) and Moss Side as well as a volunteer-run community centre at Wade Hall in Seven Stars. Leyland & Farington is also home to 16 places of worship including an Islamic Centre as well as various denominations of the Christian faith. There are nine GP surgeries and a late night pharmacy.
The South Ribble Together Community Hub, working together in partnership with the NHS and Citizen's Advice, has also been formed to cater for the sudden needs brought upon by the pandemic for those people shielding or self-isolating.
