Liverpool Community Advice and Livewire Liverpool have taken up residence at 151 Dale Street, adding to the complement of 21 voluntary sector tenants already based in the building.
Owned and managed by LCVS (Liverpool Charity and Voluntary Services), 151 Dale Street is a hub for voluntary sector activity in the city. Extensive refurbishment works took place to the first floor of the iconic, art deco building, prior to the new tenancies commencing.
Support organisation Liverpool Community Advice is an independent charity that provides personal advice to the residents of Liverpool, on matters including money and debts, personal circumstances and issue resolution, amongst others.
Kristian Khan, chief executive of Liverpool Community Advice (LCA), said of the relocation:
“We are really pleased to be a part of this voluntary community hub. There is a great synergy between LCA and the other organisations based here at 151 Dale Street. We take a holistic approach to meeting the unique needs of every client; being based at our new home has already allowed us to form stronger bonds with complementary services, strengthening our offering and making our referral process increasingly seamless as a result.”
The second new tenant, Livewire Liverpool, provides support and motivation to people who wish to make healthy changes to their lifestyle. Livewire Liverpool Health Trainers and volunteers facilitate individuals to get fitter, control their diet, quit smoking and regain control in other areas relating to well-being.
Vivien Graham, service manager at Livewire Liverpool, said:
“The LCVS building is such a beautiful space. It is a pleasure to come to work every day, to the city’s cultural quarter. With the added value of the networking opportunities that our new office affords, we couldn’t be happier with our move.”
Liverpool Charity and Voluntary Services, known as LCVS, has been a central hub of charitable activities in the city for over 100 years. The organisation provides a comprehensive range of services to voluntary sector colleagues, including funding advice, partnership development support and infrastructure services, including accountancy, office space and capacity building.
