We are exceptionally proud of the projects we deliver to help support the wellbeing of local families and children across Merseyside. Here are some of the exciting projects we have worked on, or are currently delivering, in the region.
Our Budding Connections Project was kindly funded by The National Lottery Local Connections Community Fund. As a consequence of the Covid crisis there were no free parent & baby classes available to help new parents create connections and access peer support.
As a direct response to concerns from new parents about the effects of isolation on their wellbeing, we were able to deliver FREE parent and baby classes at venues across Liverpool, Knowsley and Sefton. The project was real a success and the feedback we received was excellent.
We run funded Nature Clubs for children and families at Parks and Green Spaces in the city. Our popular Nature Club sessions at Springfield Park in Knotty Ash are funded in part by Friends of Springfield Park (via National Lottery funding) and LCVS (Liverpool Charity & Voluntary Services).
Children and families can enjoy vegetable growwing in the raised beds, forest school activities, nature crafts and more! Our activities are designed to bring families together, to strengthen connections in the wake of the Covid crisis and beyond.
Nature for Wellbeing
Our Nature for Wellbeing Project has been funded by the National Lottery Awards for All fund. This funding will allow us to deliver nature focused wellbeing activities and events for children, families, new parents and older people across the region over a 12 moth period. We will be working with trusted partners and facilitators to help us along the way.
We are honoured that our Pallentine Gardens project was chosen, as one of only 300 projects across the UK, to receive funding from the pilot Places Called Home fund from Ikea UK and the National Lottery. This project will see the transformation of a run-down terraced alleyway in L13 to a thriving community space with opportunities to grow, work together and connect with neighbours.
