Other Help

Due to funding criteria, we may be unable to assist with certain enquiries (we do not fill in benefit forms and we can only deal with welfare rights matters for residents within the Liverpool City Council area). However, there are other agencies within the area that may be able to help:



Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/acornliverpool

Acorn is a community based union of working class people: tenants, workers, residents.

Acorn are a member-led organisation supporting & empowering low-income communities across the country to fight for a better life. Acorn believe that the economic and political set up in this country isn’t working for working class people so have set up ACORN to give people the power and representation they’re entitled to.
