About us

A strategic organisation, driving structural reform, One Knowsley unlocks the power of communities, social action and social business. We provide leadership, expertise and connectivity to drive forward the conditions that enable communities in Knowsley to build resilience, establish enterprise and have a visible and valued role in creating and securing positive outcomes for Knowsley.

Who we are

One Knowsley is a charitable company that evolved from Huyton with Roby Council for Social Service (HCSS) inaugurated in 1963 to provide support to local volunteers and establish local responses to local need.

In 1974 the district authority of Knowsley was created. Strong, passionate and active communities firmly put people at the heart of Knowsley the Place.

One Knowsley provides the expertise and support to help voluntary, community, faith and not-for-profit (Social Sector) to start, grow, build resilience, establish enterprise and have a visible and valued role within the borough.

One Knowsley is an independent voice leading influence on policy and practice, supporting consultation with communities and representation within partnerships.

What we do

One Knowsley is the centre for civil society in Knowsley.

An independent infrastructure development organisation that builds pathways between the public and private sector.  Connecting communities to decision makers, commissioners, partners and resources.

One Knowsley works with the Knowsley community; those who live, work and invest in the borough and want to do good for Knowsley residents and build strong communities.

How we work

One Knowsley provides practical support and development to start, build, grow and support social action and not-for-profit activity in Knowsley through the One Knowsley membership.

One Knowsley champions, promotes and connects the power of communities and not-for-profit to each other, to decision makers, to funders and investors.

We are an agile organisation that is effective & influential

One Knowsley today evolved from Huyton with Roby Council for Social Service (HCSS) inaugurated in 1963 to provide support to local volunteers and establish local responses to local need. In 1974 the district authority of Knowsley was created.
