EitC & Steve Morgan Foundation Partnership Generates £35.6m For Speke-Garston

Everton in the Community (EitC) has revealed that its delivery of the ‘Steve Morgan Community Impact Model’ in Speke-Garston has generated £35.6m of total social value since it first launched in March 2020.



Made possible by the multi-million-pound funding received from the Steve Morgan Foundation, the club’s official charity delivers early intervention programmes in Speke-Garston to protect young people from exploitation and inspire them to reach their full potential.


Reflecting on the success of the charity’s delivery in Speke-Garston alone, an independent report by socio-economic specialists, RealWorth found that for every £1 spent to deliver the Impact Model, £17.78 of social value was created for society*.


As a result, EitC has generated a remarkable £35.6m of total social value in the last three years from March 2020 to December 2023.


Elsewhere, whilst the report shows that the Impact Model has reduced anti-social behaviour and vulnerability to gangs, improved physical and mental wellbeing and boosted self-confidence amongst the young people in Speke-Garston, elevated academic achievements and developments in work and life skills were associated with over half of the total social value.


Sue Gregory, CEO at EitC, said: “We’ve been working with the Steve Morgan Foundation since 2020 delivering their Impact Model, and the results that we’ve seen in Speke-Garston during that time is astounding.


“The findings from the RealWorth report speak for themselves; to have generated over £35m in total social value in just three years shows the significant value the Impact Model has had on the lives of so many young people across South Liverpool.


“We look forward to continuing this work with the Steve Morgan Foundation and seeing what the next three years brings.”


Liam Eaglestone, CEO at Steve Morgan Foundation, added: “Originally inspired by Steve Morgan’s desire to give back to the community where he was born, we are delighted that the Impact Model has already changed the trajectories of so many young people living in our region.


“Our partnership with Everton in the Community highlights the Foundation’s approach to providing long-term secure funding, underpinned by very practical support and expertise and, we too, are excited to see the impact it has over the coming years.”
