ABOUT

Who We Are

Triple C (Liverpool) began life as the Three Churches Community Project, with a vision to develop social action and community engagement, led by the three Anglican churches in Liverpool 11.

Since then, we’ve developed into well established charity, with a small team of part time staff who support many volunteers across our project areas. Nearly 20 years on, we’re living out the vision of our founders and make a difference, especially in Croxteth and Norris Green.

Trustees are appointed by invitation and a key criteria for their recruitment is an interest in, and knowledge of, the communities of Norris Green and Croxteth. Many of our trustees live here in Liverpool 11, with others coming in from further afield, offering their skills and experience to boost our charity’s capacity.

Together, we’re deeply committed to our charitable aims and values.

It’s been a privilege to be part of the development of Triple C (Liverpool) and a joy to see the impact it has in bringing about positive change in the lives of local people. Life in our communities, where disadvantage scores highly (IMD) can be hard.

It’s a further privilege to hear the testimony of local people who we have helped, stories of lives changed for the better. These stories inspire me. Other story of hardship and struggle inspire me and others… to know that what we do can make a difference and that our work is not yet complete… and may never be. Our charity has kept growing and we are working hard to ensure it is sustainable for the coming years.
