Knowsley Better Together is a new approach which aims to see the council working in partnership with residents, businesses, partners and the voluntary sector – more than ever before.
Knowsley Better Together hopes to encourage a series of informal ‘deals’ between the council and residents and businesses etc. The ‘deals’ will outline what both parties will do to achieve a shared goal. For example the council could agree to provide funding to community or voluntary groups if they agree that they will use the funding to transform local wasteland into a community garden. This is just one example of what can be achieved by pooling resources and skills to have a greater impact.
