Community Hubs – We are in your community
Community hubs allow the LFC Foundation to deliver a hyper local offer for the most deprived communities in Liverpool. Working with local community facilities we can add value to their provision by supporting with physical improvements to the space but also delivering our programmes from the centres. During the pandemic the Foundation has provided over 800 essential food parcels to those in need and engaged with 1000 people across the community hub sites.
