Our Commitments to Communities & People
We take a multifaceted approach in supporting and developing communities to encourage positive wellbeing, skills development and inclusivity.
Our communities are the lifeblood of the work we do at Liverpool ONE.
Through the Liverpool ONE Foundation we are committed to supporting young people and improving mental health. We actively engage with arts and cultural organisations to celebrate local talent, encouraging participation and learning.
The Liverpool ONE Team support skills development and growth, nurturing talent and inspire future generations. People are at the absolute heart of our business, representing the most fundamental component to our sustainability.
We work with communities around three pillars:
Our aim is to positively impact the lives of around 30,000 young people working with local organisations each year via the Liverpool ONE Foundation, supporting local charities working with young people and mental health.
Working with partners and community groups to make Liverpool ONE welcoming to everyone.
Every year we work with over 100 local artists and organisation showcasing Arts & Culture from across the region with the aim to improve people’s wellbeing.
We are on a journey working hard to have a positive impact on all our communities and the environment. Find out what else we do around our Commitments to the Environment as part of our ESG Work – ONE Community ONE Future.
