We were pleased to welcome the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Mary Rasmussen, to visit some of our services at Local Solutions on Monday 19th August.
The Lord Mayor of Liverpool is known as the first citizen and is the chosen representative of the city, acting as a focal point for the community as well as promoting the city and forging national and international links.
The Lord Mayor visited our Young Person's Hub. Based in Scotland Road the hub houses several support services focused on helping young people to build resilience, raise their aspirations and achieve their goals:
- AIMS Mentoring
- Sports Horizons
- Supported Lodgings
During her visit the Lord Mayor spoke with members of our AIMS & Sports Horizons teams about the challenges they have faced delivering the hub model during the pandemic & how they've developed digital solutions such as the Virtual Hub.
In addition the services based at the hub, the Lord Mayor met with members of our Homeground Hostel team & discussed the ongoing work within the hostel to support homeless young people.
"It was great to meet the Lord Mayor today and tell her about all the work we do in the hub. She is a great advocate for charities in the city & I look forward to seeing her again and sharing with her the outcomes of our future plans that we spent some time discussing"
- Sue Shelley, AIMS & Sports Horizons Manager
Local Solutions greatly appreciates having a close connection with the Lord Mayor & look forward to seeing her again to discuss Local Solutions and organising an event to support one of the Lord Mayors chosen charities, Tom Harrison House.
