What we do...
Select one of our main areas of work
One Ark looks to increase wealth and create resilient communities, generating opportunities for people to make inspiring changes to their life chances.
Through partnerships and alliances we will generate investment to target community needs around employment and skills, wellbeing, financial and digital inclusion and the environment.
Health and Wellbeing
The place that you live and the lifestyle that you lead can have a huge effect on health and well-being. In a tough economic climate it’s difficult to eat right and live healthily when you are on a budget. One Ark have lots of projects and activities going on around Knowsley that can help you make your money go further and help you live a healthy, happy life! Have a look at our projects below and get involved...
We have lots of inspiring ideas and rewarding advice that can make your money go further. Whether you’re looking for tips on saving money around the home, or for someone to speak to offer debt management guidance, One Ark can deliver results tailored to support you.
The world wide web can be a daunting place but with many support services moving towards being digital it’s even more important to be confident in using the internet. We have lots of local events and courses that can give hands-on advice and help you get the most out of the internet.
Employability and Skills
Unemployment rates in Knowsley are amongst some of the highest in the country and getting a job can be tough.
Being green and saving money go hand in hand. With increasing cost of utility bills and food prices, there’s been no better time to benefit from a greener lifestyle. Get involved with our community projects, pick the advice that suits you, and watch your money grow.
