Who are Woolton Community Life?
Woolton Community Life came about as Dr George Kuruvilla, a local GP, realised that our communities are becoming more fragmented. In Woolton we have a high proportion of retired people, with many people living alone and often immediate family have left the area to find work.
Under direction from Dr Kuruvilla the churches, community organisations, medical professionals, and local residents started Woolton Community Life to see how we can bring people together.
