Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal


Lord Mayor’s



 Lord Mayor’s Official Partners

I have created a partnership of four local non-profit organisations and one local company who will work with me to: enhance the experiences and help widen the horizons of young people leaving care; support those who live in areas with limited access to some of the opportunities that our city provides.

My not-for-profit partners are the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Liverpool Council for Voluntary Services, Liverpool Museums and Galleries and the Community Foundation of Lancashire & Merseyside. The partners will be helped by my main private sector partner, Lunya, the tapas restaurant who will assist all other partners with fund raising opportunities.



Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Registered Charity Number: 230538

Liverpool Philharmonic enhances and transforms lives through music, and it is our main objective to promote the love of music. At the heart of our work is the acclaimed Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra which presents over 400 concerts and events annually at the Philharmonic Hall. We combine our artistic and learning programmes, performance venues in support for new talent, and our musicians are deeply committed and involved all year round in this wide-ranging work, both on and off stage. A range of opportunities includes performing in the Orchestra, and small ensembles, engaging in learning and participation activities, the Youth Company, In Harmony Liverpool, and our pioneering Music and Health Programme with the NHS.


Liverpool Council for Voluntary Services
Registered Charity No 223485

LCVS (Liverpool Charity and Voluntary Services) was founded in 1909, when the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, held a meeting to discuss creating a body that would help charities co-operate with one another and with public authorities. Since then, LCVS has been working to improve the well-being of individuals and communities in Liverpool.

LCVS provides support, advice, training, networking and representation for the Voluntary, Community, Faith & Social Enterprise (VCFSE) sector across the Liverpool City Region. We also help donors distribute over £4 million every year to charitable organisations, both here in the UK and across the world, who share our values.

Our focus is on health, education, income stability and culture as the cornerstones to the well-being, both for individuals and for stronger communities.


Liverpool Museums and Galleries
National Museums Liverpool is an exempt charity under Schedule 3 of the Charities Act 2011.

National Museums Liverpool is a group of seven museums and art galleries across the Liverpool City which welcomes millions of local people and tourists every year. With a history dating back to 1851, our venues are home to some of the world’s most beautiful and precious art and artefacts.

Our Learning and Participation team are increasingly working with teenagers and young people through educational workshops on topics like weapons, drugs awareness and careers.

We aim to further develop our work with young people and increase engagement with care leavers. Our programme will help to provide young people and care leavers with new skills and knowledge, as well as encourage health and wellbeing through access to workshops and career insights.



Community Foundation of Lancashire & Merseyside
Registered Charity Number: 1068887

We help individuals and organisations give to causes that matter to them – where support is most needed and where it will have the greatest impact.

Our value is in connecting those who are passionate about giving back, and have the available resources, to those incredible and deserving community groups who are best placed to make a real impact. Our role is to ensure the flow of continual investment into the region, working with donors to help manage and distribute funding so it goes to those who need it most.

Working together we can build a thriving community, where people of all generations can grow, flourish – and prosper now – and in the future.


Lord Mayor of Liverpool Charity Partnerships 2024/2025

 I will be working with all of my partner organisations to highlight and thank them for what they are doing and to help them with their fundraising efforts to maintain or expand their services.

We will all be working hard to ensure that all young people in the city have a good start in life and give them experiences that will enable them to see enhanced ways out of the difficulties that so many of them face.


Thank you for your support.

The Right Worshipful, The Lord Mayor of Liverpool,

Councillor Richard Kemp CBE
