What We Do

In summary, we are growing our economy and attracting more residents and businesses to live, work, visit or invest in the Liverpool City Region. We are helping to deliver this by ensuring that our funding and resources are being targeted at the right issues for our area.

Since our formation in April 2014, we have achieved great things. This includes securing £150 million investment in 14 transport improvement schemes, £9 million of Growth Deal funding invested in the International Festival for Business 2016 and Littlewoods Studios (state-of-the-art film studios), £21.5 million invested in over 30 projects to enhance or build new learning facilities and the identification of key housing and development sites across the region to drive future economic growth.

Current Programmes:

Households into Work

Households into Work (HiW) is being delivered across Liverpool City Region’s 6 local authority areas – Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral. The aim of HiW is to help people who are long term unemployed find employment or at least help them to overcome the barrier(s) that are preventing them from seeking employment.
