Epsom Street Community Centre
Epsom Street Community Centre (Epsy) is committed to bringing about change through education, raising aspirations, raising hope and bringing about community unity.
We are committed to engaging with the community to bring about a long-lasting change, that has positive energy and a shining beacon.
The Caritas Team who oversee Epsy have a vision of the centre becoming a community hub, bringing all areas of the community together, working in partnership with other organisations to support the wellbeing of all its local residents; from babies, children, young people, adults and our wonderful older community.
We welcome everyone and invite you to join us!
In February 2019 we opened a weekly community market. This venture supports people of all ages and backgrounds, including working families, young mothers and older people from sheltered accommodation and provides supermarket quality food at really reduced prices, with a full shopping basket of food available for approx. £5, compared to almost £30 at leading supermarkets. The Community Food Market Kirkdale is one of two, the other being in Woodvale near Southport. The market is supported by Tesco Dale St, Sainsbury Gt Homer St, Foodshare and Micah.
The Community food market is open every Tuesday from 10am to 11am, at Epsom Street Community Centre on Goodwood Street.
Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Nugent’s Caritas staff and volunteers have extended the weekly food market, located at Epsom Street, and added a weekly food parcel delivery service to reach those self-isolating or shielding. In the first six months since lockdown, together with our wonderful volunteers, we have provided vital supplies to over 3,573 people with the delivery of 1,500 hampers across the Liverpool City Region.
