Liverpool’s Lord Mayor, Cllr Mary Rasmussen, visits SLH’s community projects

Published: 14 July 2021

The Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Mary Rasmussen, has paid a visit to South Liverpool Homes (SLH) community projects today, Wednesday 14 July, to celebrate the recent re-opening of some of our front-facing services following the Covid-19 pandemic.

Employability hub, Reach, our community shop, The Market Place and our community garden, Grow Speke, have all reopened their doors to visitors and volunteers alike over the last couple of months so it was fantastic to welcome the Lord Mayor along to each of the projects to meet the people who keep the wheels turning.

The Lord Mayor spoke to volunteers, SLH colleagues and Groundwork staff to find out a bit more about the projects, how they are making an impact on the local community and our plans for future projects across Speke and Garston.

Helping our customers and their communities

Joe Cummings, SLH’s Community Investment Manager said: “Although some of the projects haven’t had a physical presence during the pandemic, many of them have continued to operate in different ways. Reach continued to offer virtual appointments for customers to help them with their job search, The Market Place supported the local community with bags of food shopping that may have gone to waste, and volunteers kept Grow Speke flourishing over the last 16 months. 

We are delighted to welcome back visitors and customers to these fantastic local facilities, and we are honoured that the Lord Mayor has chosen to visit these today and recognise the amazing work carried out by volunteers and colleagues.”

SLH has a dedicated community investment team whose role is to link people with local activities and groups to help improve their health and wellbeing, as well as offering support with employment opportunities and access to low-cost food and household goods via our volunteer-run community shop.
