Community Groups play a pivotal role in our communities – helping to signpost people through to help and support, organising activities that address social isolation through to keeping their communities clean with regular litter picks. ]

Community groups can also access a range of funding streams which can help to improve the borough generally or target specific issues identified by local communities.

Community groups also provide a vital ‘check in’ services with more vulnerable members of the community. It may just be picking up a prescription, putting out their bin or just being a listening ear.

As well as supporting others, joining a community groups also brings immense satisfaction to people – they are volunteering their time to help others, they are learning new skills and importantly, they are also making new friendships. Their work and support is vital and strongly shows Knowsley Better Together in action.
