About us

The Mayor's Hope Fund is an independent charity established by the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, to aid the relief of poverty in Liverpool. Since 2013, the fund has given over £1/4m to charities that help people most in need. During the Covid-19 pandemic it is our priority to ensure everyone can access the food they need. Our aim is to support the foodbanks that help the most at-risk groups in the city as we tackle this crisis. Every penny you donate will help vulnerable families in Liverpool access food and essential items during these uncertain times. We thank you for your support. Stay safe, stay strong and look forward to the time when we are through this crisis.

22,600 people

in the city used foodbanks between April 2018 and March 2019 - 36% of those donations fed children
