We want Liverpool to be the best city in the UK to grow up in – where children are healthy, happy, safe from harm, ready to learn, ready for school and ready for work.

Liverpool Promise brings together school staff, children and young people, cultural organisations, businesses and leaders across the city, all of whom want to make a positive difference to the lives of children and young people.
