Closing Statement

history of success in their respective areas of the city. Community businesses all over Liverpool are transforming the city for the better. We have the help and support at hand to create something exceptional for Kirkdale. Liverpool City Council is having to cope with sharp cuts to its budgets, but this project doesn’t require any Council funding. Even without being able to access the site, the CIC has already been able to secure developmental funding and support from major support providers for community businesses. We’ve received this funding because these organisations have seen the great potential that the Ralla project holds to become a financially sustainable and profitable initiative. With an agreement of access in place, the CIC can concentrate on accessing large-scale funding, bringing hundreds of thousands of pounds of investment into an extremely deprived part of the city. We are here, we are ready, and together we can create a greener, brighter and healthier Kirkdale.
