Liverpool Fc Donates £57,000 To Support Local Organisations With Staff Training Opportunities

Liverpool Football Club has announced a generous donation of £57,000 to aid local organisations by providing staff training opportunities, ensuring the sustainability of their businesses. This initiative is part of LFC’s Levy Initiative Scheme, which has already contributed over £270,000 to support various Liverpool City Region entities by utilizing unused apprenticeship levy funds to enhance staff training and skills.

Among the beneficiaries of the levy are notable organizations such as Rotunda, Nugent Care, Positive Futures North Liverpool, Park View Care Home, and Homebaked, each offering valuable services ranging from youth development to healthcare and education for communities within the region’s local authorities. With more than 50 individuals benefiting from apprenticeship training through the initiative, Liverpool FC’s commitment to local upskilling is evident.

As the nation celebrates National Apprenticeship Week under the theme ‘Skills for Life,’ Matt Parish, the chief executive of LFC Foundation, expressed the positive impact of the donations in the local community. Parish encouraged small businesses and charities in the Liverpool City Region to take advantage of the scheme, emphasizing the importance of staff training for organizational growth.

Kean Mason-Buckley, the operations manager of Park View Care Home, one of the recent beneficiaries, highlighted their plan to invest in staff qualifications using the levy donation. This initiative aims to enhance the quality of care provided by the home, while also creating job opportunities and offering support to those in need within the community.

The Apprenticeship Levy, managed by the UK government, is a resource available to businesses with an annual salary bill exceeding £3 million. Through the LFC Levy Initiative Scheme, up to 25% of unused levy funds can be transferred to other local businesses or charities, promoting skills development and workforce enhancement across the Liverpool City Region. Applications for funding are open year-round, welcoming all eligible entities to apply.
