Better Lives


Better Lives is a registered Charity (1070751) delivering support services for older people.

(Formerly known as KPAIS – Knowsley Pensioners Advocacy & Information Service)

We currently deliver two service projects: TASK (TrAder Scheme Knowsley) which is a directory of reputable traders, vetted and DBS checked, for the use of older and vulnerable people and; SHOP for YOU (Supporters Helping Older People) which delivers, shopping, cleaning and sitting services to older and vulnerable people charged at an hourly rate.

TASK is the TrAder Scheme Knowsley and is a directory of reputable traders who are DBS checked and vetted to ensure that older and vulnerable people are not being ripped off by rogue traders. TASK has been in place since 2004 and is well loved by the people who use it. If you are a trader who would like to join TASK or a resident in need of a reputable trader call 0151 546 6680 for more information.

The SHOP for You service has been in place since March 2018. SHOP stands for Supporters Helping Older People and delivers a shopping, cleaning and support service at a competitive rate. This does NOT include any personal care. What makes SHOP invaluable is the model of delivery. You will be matched with a supporter who will deliver your services on a weekly basis, housed within a safe and solid structure of a longstanding organisation. All supporters go through an enhanced DBS check and our bespoke training. SHOP for You is a charged service. If you are interested in becoming a paid supporter or in using our services call 0151 449 3706 for more information.
