In YOUR Community

Supporting local young people and families in 2021.

At LFC Foundation, we’re committed to ensuring our local communities have access to the essential services and opportunities they need. That’s why we’re kicking-off 2021 with an exciting new venture, facilitated at community venues across Merseyside, to bring people together and improve the general health and wellbeing of our communities.

From January onwards, we will be working with four venues across the region, offering support to local people through a variety of new activities and Foundation programmes. 

We’re teaming up to deliver fun, easy-to-access programmes such as sport activities, social action, volunteering, health and wellbeing, employability, and much more.

During the current national lockdown, whilst most in person sessions are paused in line with Government guidelines, there will be various safe, virtually delivered programmes on offer to young people and families to access across Liverpool City Region via the hub network.
