Launched in February 2020, A Good Life Project offers wrap-around practical support for adults in Knowsley who are disadvantaged for any reason, be it poverty, disability, age or other circumstances which prevent them from having ‘a good life’.
A Good Life is a partnership project of specialist, local organisations working together with other community services, including health and social care professionals and voluntary sector organisations. Sight and Mind are proud to be a partner, working together to find and deliver successful interventions to help those in need, when they need it and address underlying issues and long term problems.
Working with us on A Good Life, you will be assigned a support worker from the team of ‘Connectors’ who will work alongside you to help you deal with a crisis, overcome the issues and build your skills and knowledge to be able to cope better in the future. We ensure that the wealth of community services available in Knowsley is made available to help improve the situation and move you closer to having A Good Life.
If you or someone you know would benefit from accessing A Good Life, please contact them via the details below:
