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:

Young People & Skills

Positively impacting the lives of around 30,000 young people via the Liverpool ONE Foundation working with Youth Clubs and local charities on mental health initiatives. Collaborating with schools, colleges and universities to improve skills and talent retention. 

Inclusivity & Accessibility

Working with partners and community groups to make Liverpool ONE the most welcoming and accessible place for all communities and people.

Wellbeing & Culture

Showcasing Arts & Culture from across the region with the aim to improve people’s wellbeing. Aiming to collaborate with at least 100 local artists and organisations every year.

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.
