Who Are We
In 1998, we opened our doors as the UK’s first dedicated Urban gospel and arts centre.
Our aim? To up-skill disadvantaged groups within the community and contribute to North Liverpool’s regeneration through 4 simple tenets:
People can feel isolated even when they are in the heart of the city.
Isolation affects older generations in particular and people can feel completely disconnected from their local community.
People of any age can feel isolated and we work tirelessly to involve and integrate people, so they can enjoy ‘feeling a part of it’.
90% of asylum seekers & refugees confirm they are less isolated
The percentage of unemployed households in Liverpool is much higher than the national average and we are trying to help change that.
We offer a varied range of training opportunities, including accredited courses, that will help people take those first steps to employment.
ESOL – English for speakers of other languages
Arts and cultural programmes
Urban arts workshops
90% of young people will acquire new skills (essential life skills of performing arts)
Liverpool is a city with a famous community spirit and we look to play a big part in ensuring it stays that way.
Strong community cohesion is good for everyone and is incredibly powerful, it can:
Reduce crime rates
Increase employment rates
Bring regeneration to the area
75% of local residents said positive engagement of young people contributes to less antisocial behaviour in the community
Anfield and the surrounding area has been identified as a 'Arts poor' zone. Being in the heart of Liverpool, a city with a rich history of Arts and Culture, we feel a responsibility to bring back the arts to the community around us.
We believe that great art and culture simply makes life richer, and everyone should be able to experience and participate in it.
90% of young people entered on Arts Awards programmes get certificates.
