The Grant is open to voluntary and community organisations across Liverpool who can demonstrate that they are able to help to achieve the aims and objectives of the Our Liverpool Outcome Framework (available within the pack). It will fund organisations who can demonstrate that they will meet the needs of people seeking asylum, refugees, vulnerable migrants and / or established communities.

The total funding available is £200,000 per year, for two years (i.e. £400,000 in total).

The thematic area objectives for 2019/21 are as follows:

  • Thematic Area 1: Needs of People Seeking Asylum
  • Thematic Area 2: Employability and Welfare Rights
  • Thematic Area 3: Language
  • Thematic Area 4: Health and Wellbeing
  • Thematic Area 5: Communities Culture and Social Connections

The demand for this funding is expected to be high therefore not all projects will be successful.
