St Andrews Community Network 2019

St. Andrew's Community Network has been working to tackle poverty in the Clubmoor area of Liverpool since 2003.

Their aim is to transform their community by changing lives and building relationships. They support people who struggle financially and help people through periods of crisis. They provide free, impartial and regulated money advice to over 800 people per year. They also coordinate the North Liverpool Foodbank which last year supported 11,000 people with emergency food.

 

 

This is achieved through a volunteer-led model, investing in 150 volunteers. Increasing support is also given to churches and other community organisations to carry out similar work. Over the next three years St. Andrews have ambitions to undertake more prevention and recovery work to stop people getting into crisis and support their long term recovery.
