Located between the two thriving cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Knowsley is well located, fantastically connected and yet still beautifully green.
However, like many areas in Cheshire and Merseyside, Knowsley faces challenges with deprivation and health inequalities. Knowsley Better Together is the borough’s plan for transformation and details how public service partners, local businesses and local residents will work together to deliver a new deal for communities and improved outcomes for residents across the area.
The plan aims to:
Services are co-ordinated through four locality hubs across the borough and partners across the borough have been working towards the delivery of integrated care through the locality hubs.
