Everton in the Community is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of the people living on Merseyside and delivers many responsive and multi-dimensional programmes that tackle a range of identified and emerging public health challenges.
Working alongside a number of key regional and national health agencies and partners, the charity delivers many targeted health-intervention programmes aimed at promoting positive lifestyle choices and promoting the quality of life for some of the most hard-to-reach groups in Liverpool.
Everton in the Community has helped to pioneer a series of programmes to specifically tackle mental health issues among different groups within the local community. Working with Mersey Care NHS Trust since 2007, the Club’s official charity has been working with the leading organisation in the provision of mental health care, addiction services and learning disability care to deliver a series of programmes across the North West, supporting individuals experiencing dementia, unemployment and isolation.
The Health and Wellbeing pillar also works with other health organisations and universities throughout Merseyside to support and deliver a number of health promotion campaigns which work to raise awareness of public health issues as well as creating a healthier Liverpool for all.
