How would you like Knowsley to look by 2030?

That’s the question One Knowsley and its partners are asking you as part of their work to develop a new long-term vision for the borough. This work will consider the type of place Knowsley could be and what it could offer the people living and working here in 2030.

To be able to do this, we need your help.

What matters to you? What could make a difference to your future?

We need to understand how the people living, working and studying in Knowsley today, feel about the place and what their hopes for the future are.

We need people from all parts of the community – residents, businesses, young and old – to share their views, opinions and experience of life here today. We need to know what matters to you and what you would like to see in the future. This isn’t just about the physical environment or facilities but other issues like education, jobs and health.

We are now beginning a period of in-depth engagement with the community. The new long term strategy for Knowsley will be developed over the next 18 months, will launch in 2020 and run until 2030.

You can tell us what matters to you in this online survey.

More information about how to get involved and help shape the future of the borough will be posted here, or you can keep updated on Twitter – @knowsley2030– and regular updates will be published on www.knowsleynews.co.uk(search 2030).

Let’s Talk 2030

A Sector organisation received extensive critical friend advice, information and guidance together with technical expertise from One Knowsley to develop and submit a Reaching Communities Lottery Bid.

The successful bid for £289,661.00 is estimated using a HACT value calculation to generate per £1 secured £62.90 additional economic value into the Knowsley Social Economy.

Impact Case Study 1

Within 24 hours of a Risk MOT via our CSR partnership with Butterworth Spengler a small charity secured higher quality cover, mitigating risk to the charity and achieving a budget line saving of £700.

This saving was reprofiled into direct delivery securing 70 hours of sessional outreach to the most isolated older people within Knowsley Communities.

Impact Case Study 2

Just a quick message to thank you for today’s event and say how much I enjoyed it. I believe that One Knowsley has made a tremendous difference for our sector over the past year or two and the latest Working Better Together session was no exception.

The networking opportunities you facilitate are priceless. I personally developed four excellent contacts which I have followed up and will hopefully enable us to:

  • Extend our services to different communities
  • Raise awareness with young people about disability hate crime
  • Improve our offer of activities via The BIG Group
  • Explore the formation of a new strategic partnership to increase our payroll customer base, thus improving our financial viability and sustainability.

Impact Testimonial KDC

KPAIS has been through quite significant changes over the last 2 years and has dealt with some difficult challenges.

Some of this has been daunting and we have been fortunate enough to have had the support of One Knowsley throughout that time.

It was so important to us to be able to contact an organisation that was:

a) knowledgeable about our issues

b) was independent and approachable

c) was there when we needed them!

We have grown and changed, developing new services and continually up-skilling with One Knowsley support.

We signed up for their membership in 2018 and have taken advantage of what is on offer to members, which has been invaluable.

Over many years as an advocacy service, we have helped older people to maintain and retain their independence, to gather information to make decisions and to stay in control of their choices.  And this is what One Knowsley have done for us.  We look forward to continue our successful working relationship into the future.
