Liverpool’s world-famous Strawberry Field has seen its first group of young adults graduate from a new programme to help them into work.
The iconic red gates made famous by the Beatles opened to the public for the very first time in 2019 following a refurbishment and rebuilding scheme at the former children’s home.
Owned by The Salvation Army, Strawberry Field has a long-standing connection with young people in Liverpool.
For nearly 70 years, it gave some of Liverpool’s most vulnerable children a refuge from turmoil and unhappiness.
Now the Steps to Work programme reaches out to young adults with learning difficulties or other barriers to employment through a training hub on the lower ground floor of Strawberry Field.
