Community Within Communities: Our Voices to be Heard will engage, involve and celebrate Sefton’s people and places.
The Communities within Communities project runs from October 2021 to January 2023 and is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. We have engaged volunteers and community groups across the borough in a range of heritage activities that have celebrated Sefton’s people and places.
As well as a community grants round, we have created a touring Historic Townships exhibition focused on the following areas:
- Maghull and Lydiate
- Waterloo and Seaforth
Our Heritage Toolkit is designed for Voluntary, Community and Faith Groups in Sefton and provides the building blocks to running your own heritage projects. Through advice and guidance, we provide step by step information from taking an idea through to its delivery as a community project.

The programme of events for this project will help to promote Sefton’s rich and diverse heritage and, in doing so, provide a springboard for future community development.
