The Big Help Trading-our shops

The Big Help Trading was established in 2015, and from the outset had two aims: to provide a way of raising funds to support the work of the Big Help Project, and to build strong links between the Big Help Project and the community we serve. The first retail outlet for the Big Help Trading was the community shop in Huyton, which opened in 2015. We now have a two more shops-Picton Road in Wavertree (furniture) and our Homes with Style store in Huyton. All of our retail outlets have a team made up of paid staff and volunteers. 

Our retail outlets are:

The Big Help Project Community Shop-opened in August 2015 by M.P. for Knowsley the Rt. Hon. George Howarth, the then Mayoress of Knowsley Cllr Edna Finneran, and Leader of Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council Andy Moorhead. The Community Shop sells quality preloved adults and children clothes, accessories, books, bric-a-brac and small electricals. The Community Shop also serves as a way for the community to access the Big Help Project's range of services, and is also a donation point for food for Knowlsey Foodbank.

Picton Road Furniture Shop-opened in 2016, this is the first of our stores to open outside of Knowsley. This store sells quality pre-loved furniture and white goods, as well as a range of Community Repaint paint.

Homes with Style-opened in December 2016 by M.P. for Knowsley the Rt. Hon. George Howarth, Mayor of Knowsley Cllr Frank Walsh, Chief Executive of Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council Mike Harden and Leader of Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council Andy Moorhead. Homes with Style is an exciting joint partnership between the Big Help Trading, Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Co-op Electrical and local credit unions. Homes with Style offers customers a new, ethical credit option to equip and furnish their home.
