Almost 50 funding bids received for Knowsley Better Together

by Laura Johnston

Almost 50 funding applications have been received for the next round of Knowsley Better Together funding.

Community groups were invited to bid for up to £10,000 of funding to help their initiative get off the ground and help to improve the lives of people living or working in Knowsley.

Knowsley Better Together brings people and organisations closer together to achieve more for Knowsley. The bids needed to support at least one of the council’s priorities, which are:-

  • Contribution to education (attendance, attainment, aspiration)
  • Contribution to the health and wellbeing of Knowsley residents (mental health, obesity and domestic abuse)
  • High quality, sustainable adult social care (dementia, reducing social isolation and promoting independence including employment and volunteering opportunities for people with learning difficulties and physical disabilities)
  • Accelerating business growth, jobs and housing including interventions that reduce demand on council services

The bids are now being evaluated and allocations are due to be made later next month.
