The Team

Our small core team work day-to-day to plan and deliver the projects and partnerships that connect people and build communities across Liverpool. We're based out of Baltic Creative CIC, in the heart of the Baltic Triangle. We also have support from colleagues working in The Cares Family.

To contact us to get involved, or if you have a query, please see our email addresses below.

Jess Dyson-Houghton - Head of Programmes

Jess oversees Liverpool Cares’ programmes, as well as managing the team. When Jess isn’t at work, you might see them walking their dog through Sefton Park with a coffee in hand, grabbing a drink or two on Lark Lane, or getting out of the city to explore and enjoy a hike.

Rachael Treacher - Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator

As Senior Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, Rachael introduces older and younger neighbours to Liverpool Cares and our programmes. Rachael has lived in Liverpool for twenty years and knows the city like the back of her hand. You’ll often find her hanging out at gigs, restaurants and parks with her mates — enjoying connection, company and positive vibes.

Abbie Beckett - Social Clubs Coordinator

Abbie leads the Social Clubs programme, creating a fun and diverse programme of activities for the neighbours to enjoy. Born and bred in Anfield, she can often be found eating and drinking her way around the city, attending as many gigs as possible to hear new music, and talking the ear off anybody within chatting distance.

Alice Taylor - Love Your Neighbour Coordinator

Alice leads the Love Your Neighbour programme, which connects older and younger neighbours across Liverpool for one-to-one friendship in person and over the phone. As a relative newbie to the city, you can often find her out and about getting to know new areas, or checking in on the swans in her local park.

Rachael Forde - Development Coordinator

As the team fundraiser, Rachael leads on trusts and foundations, building corporate relations and growing an amazing team of challenge fundraisers who take on daring activities to raise those all-important funds for Liverpool Cares. Born in Liverpool, bred in the North, Rachael loves summers of rounders and winters of gigs.

Liverpool Cares is part of The Cares Family, with sibling charities in London and Manchester. We share a CEO, Managing Director, senior leadership team and trustees.
