Our Merseyside is a new social movement of people and organisations, united in supporting people living in our communities. Its message is simple: to bring pride and opportunity to Merseyside and help keep our people and our streets safe.

Merseyside is full of passionate people doing amazing work to inspire and support young people. Show your support and join our movement to help Merseyside become #BladeFree.


What can you do?

Merseyside is famous for lots of things, not least our people. Always willing to offer a helping hand, we’re friendly, loyal and caring – never afraid to take a stand to support an important cause.

That’s what Our Merseyside is all about. Bringing the power of our wonderful people together to raise awareness of important issues and make a positive difference to the people who live here. Get behind Our Merseyside and show we’re a force to be reckoned with when it comes to looking after our own.

Our first campaign is #BladeFree, a united approach to support our young people away from knife and violent crime through diversionary activities and initiatives.
