    Sefton Ukraine Welcome Appeal

    Working in partnership with local voluntary, community and faith (VCF) sector, Sefton CVS, Sefton 4 Good and Sefton Council are launching the Sefton Ukraine Welcome Appeal to raise funds to support Ukrainian individuals and families arriving in the borough of Sefton through the ‘Homes for Ukraine’ initiative. The Sefton Ukraine Welcome Appeal is all about providing assistance to Ukrainian individuals and families as they arrive in the local community working alongside local supporters and frontline organisations.

    NHS Cheshire & Merseyside

    On July 1 2022 NHS Cheshire and Merseyside will replace the clinical commissioning group infrastructure, with nine borough ‘Places’ tasked with working to improve health and care outcomes under the umbrella of the new organisation – a statutory Integrated Care Board. Sefton Partnership will bring together Sefton Council, all local NHS, voluntary, community and faith (VCF) groups and other organisations involved in improving health and care in the borough.


    Sefton 4 Good is a charity initiative from Sefton Council for Voluntary Service (CVS). It encourages local people to come together and give their time, skills, money and resources to help local good causes. Our role as Sefton CVS is to manage the project, bring people together, and enable new relationships to flourish.
