How it came about

We have been open as a resource to our local community since December 2018, a social supermarket, pay as you feel shop and community hub.


Pre COVID we had a range of engaging activities running with Make It Happen, we have naturally out grown this space with a growth in community engagement and involvement within activities.


We remained open throughout the pandemic and we have taken time to conduct customer and community surveys and events to test ideas.


We have listened to the stories and testimonials of our community, and Place of Contribution is answering the call voiced by our community. Come and join us!

How it's funded and who is involved

Place of contribution is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.


We have also been supported by Wirral Methodist Housing, Birkenhead Rotary Club, Journey men and community members tp name a few, with lots of organisations coming in to deliver bespoke sessions.

Our CEO and co founder Amy Butterworth, Christine Allen co founder and Finance Director are the driving force behind the concept bringing Place of Contribution to life.


Our community and reference group are involved in steering the agenda and the activities that Place of Contribution will deliver. 

The input of the reference group will be pivotal to the ideas, aspirations and dreams that are delivered at our Place of Contribution.

Desired impact

Our desired impact is to become a thriving community meeting point, a community anchor and a place of hope, fun and community driven action.


We will bring our contribution to join in and help develop a community who are purposeful about making changes to build and recover from COVID-19.


We together will make a difference in the lives of our customers facilitating and encouraging all ideas, hopes and dreams to be fulfilled.

As part of this we developed a Theory of Change with Capacity Lab to guide us on our POC journey and help us gauge its impact and ensure that it enables the changes we want to see for our wonderful community.
