One of the most prestigious awards in the sporting industry has recognised the work of LFC Foundation and Steve Morgan Foundation.
The Leaders Sports Awards acknowledge industry success and achievements on a global scale with global brands highlighting their work in breaking down barriers and bringing communities together.
Steve Morgan Foundation and LFC Foundation have been shortlisted for our work within five community hubs across the Liverpool City Region.
Matt Parish, LFC Foundation Chief Executive Officer said,
“Working with a partner like Steve Morgan Foundation has been unbelievable.”
“When we started this journey just over two years ago our goal was to identify and help community centres in need and support them and the people who used those spaces.”
“With the help of Steve and his team, I’m delighted with what we’ve achieved. We’ve grown our number of people supported year on year and to provide life changing opportunities to more young people and adults.”
Liam Eaglestone, CEO of the Steve Morgan Foundation added
“We are delighted that our partnership with LFC Foundation has been shortlisted for this prestigious award.”
“We are proud of the place-based impact made by the five community hubs and we look forward to working closely with the team at LFC Foundation to extend their reach across the Liverpool City Region.”
“As a leading charitable foundation, we firmly believe that it is through long-term partnerships such as this that we can make the greatest impact and difference to those in need.”
The future now looks bright for our community hubs in Toxteth, Birkenhead, Bootle, Kirkby and Anfield with those centres being given a brand-new lease of life. They are now multi-purpose spaces, with people of all ages coming together for sport, play, to gain employability skills and training or a place to a community to gather.
Looking ahead, we will use this model to grow and expand our network of community hubs, and to reach and support more people.
