Investing in Destination Bootle will provide excellent value for money and create long-lasting social, cultural and economic impacts on one of the UK's 0.5% most deprived communities. Initial analyses suggest that SAFE and our partners create on average £9 of social value for every £1 invested. For more information on our Social Return on Investment analysis click here.

We are asking a range of trusts, foundations and funding agencies to invest in Destination Bootle. We are extremely grateful to the following for providing us with grants and donations to develop our plans:
