Who We Are
Active 8 commenced operations in May 2006 from our original base on Edge Lane, Liverpool on the main road coming into the city from the M62 motorway.
After a successful tendering process the company was awarded a contract to provide support and accommodation for unaccompanied asylum seeking children, on behalf of Liverpool Social Services. One year later over 50 young people were using our services.
On 25th February 2008, we moved to our new office premises opposite the Picton Clock, one of Liverpool’s well-known landmarks. The larger, new office enabled us to improve our service capacity and diversity as we expanded into many other areas including: family contact and shorts breaks services for disabled children and their families
Our most recent move has seen us open our central, Baltic Triangle, Queens Dock area of the city where we have established a busy Family Contact Centre and our new main office hub.
Active8 has been described as “Raising the Bar in Service Provision”. Our high standards and flexibility in service provision has been acknowledged and applauded by our customers who have made us one of the most reputable support organisations around.
Today, we are an established organisation providing tailored services which include: support and accommodation for unaccompanied asylum seeking children; support and accommodation for young homeless people; child contact services; short-breaks support for children with disabilities; family support; parent assessments and much more.
