Our Mission

Community Link Foundation is a local charity with a difference; we assist anyone in Southport and surrounding areas who need financial support in the form of a variety of ways. We have a passion for supporting the people and organisations within our community and invest in the people who live in it so that we can be proud of where we live.

Whether you are a parent with a child requiring assistance as part of an on-going illness or disease, a sports team in need of new equipment to benefit local young people or a community group that needs financial support for supplies or materials, Community Link Foundation can help those who need it most.

The Community Link Foundation is the charity for the people of Southport, Formby, Ormskirk, Ainsdale, Burscough, Hesketh Bank, Rufford and Banks and the communities within these catchment boundaries.

As a charity we want to help as many people as possible with our grants so if you would like to apply to be considered for a grant to help you or someone around you, click here.

We’re waiting to hear from you and help you.
