The Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson launches the Mayor’s Hope Fund to aid the relief of poverty in Liverpool.

The Mayor recognises that it is critical to support those who are suffering most in the context of the economic downturn, changes to the welfare system and the loss of funding to the city. The Mayor has given city council grant funding to foodbanks in November 2012 (£50,000) but through the establishment of the Mayor’s Hope Fund, he intends to formalise contributions through the charity and provide an opportunity for Liverpool residents to give their support to the cause.


Applications for The Mayor’s Hope Fund Grants are now open.

If you are a not-for-profit voluntary and community organisation, independent of the statutory and private sector and based within Liverpool boundaries you may be able to able for a grant of up to £5000 to help you support local communities in the City.

All applications must be received by 12.00 noon on Monday 18th August 2014.
