Knowsley’s Deal with the Social SectorKnowlsey Better Together logo

As part of Knowsley Better Together, the council has allocated £1 million.  This funding has been allocated as follows:-

  • £300,000 allocated for local groups to work with Councillors to deliver environment improvements in their area – this is called the Environmental Challenge Fund.  To access this funding, please speak to your local Councillor – their details are available on the council’s website.
  • £700,000 allocated for community groups to work with the council to support four council priorities over the next three years. The priorities are sustainable borough (jobs/growth/housing), providing high quality and sustainable adult social care (dementia/independence/reducing isolation), maximising the council’s contribution to education in Knowsley (attendance/attainment/aspiration) and maximising the council’s contribution to the health and wellbeing of Knowsley residents (domestic abuse/mental health/obesity).  The next round of funding, for which applicants can apply for one grant of up to £10,000, will take place in March 2018.

For further advice or information, please email paul.peng@knowsley.gov.uk.

A key part of the “Deal” will be providing access to funding for our Social Sector partners, including KCVS. You can read a full copy of the council’s deal with the social sector here.
