A Good Life

‘A Good Life’ helps Knowsley be a place where all people are included, get the support they need, when they need it, and have the knowledge and skills to be self-supportive and resilient, relying less on health and social care services.

A Good Life is a partnership of specialist, local organisations working together to provide 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 project is delivered in partnership with local specialist community organisations - Knowsley Disability Concern (KDC), Knowsley Pensioners Advice and Information Services (KPAIS); Sight and Mind; and Tailored Advice Services in the Community (TASC)
