Multi-award-winning Knowsley charity the Big Help project marked the next chapter in their story in April, with the official opening of their new premises on Link Road in Huyton.

The Rt.Hon. George Howarth, M.P. for Knowsley, cut the ribbon in front of friends and supporters of the organisation, including representatives from the business community, volunteers, staff and well-wishers.

The ceremony formalised the transition to the new site, which offers increased office and warehouse space, as well as improved meeting rooms and breakout spaces for staff and visitors to enjoy.

Upon declaring the building open, George Howarth said:” The Big Help Project, with the move to bigger premises, is now in a position to broaden the help they provide still further. Given the challenges families in Knowsley have as a result of benefit cuts and insecure employment, this is a truly welcome initiative.”

CEO of the Big Help Project Barry Cooper said “the move to Link Road is a significant stage in the ongoing growth of the Big Help Project and achieving our goal of working with other to alleviate, and eventually eradicate, poverty in Knowsley. It was an honour to have George open this site for us, and to share this occasion with so many friends and supporters.”
