Spare 5 has been developed to encourage people to make time for each other! Optimising access to information relating to your health and wellbeing, Spare 5 provides access to Guidance, Apps, Information and Toolkits that link people to Wirral services, groups and agencies that are out there for all of us.

We all know the importance of talking. There are many national campaigns currently advocating this. Spare 5 is supporting Wirral to unite on this message and strive to reduce feelings of isolation and promote inclusion.

Spare 5 gives permission back to us all to listen, connect, know what’s out there and value each other.

Find out how it works

Equality, diversity, and inclusion are at the heart of our values.

As an organisation whose sole purpose is to give a strong and powerful voice to people who often go unheard, the Equality Act serves as the minimum for our work. We believe that everyone should have a fair and equal experience using health and social care.

The Equality Act 2010 legally protects people from discrimination in the workplace and in wider society.

It replaced previous anti-discrimination laws with a single Act, making the law easier to understand and strengthening protection in some situations. It sets out the different ways in which it’s unlawful to treat someone.

This means everyone having the same chances to do what they can. Some people may need extra help to get the same chances.

Equality is right for many reasons:

  • People enjoy life more if they are treated fairly.
  • The country is richer because each and every person

can do what they are best at.

  • It is easier for people to live side by side and get on with each other if everyone is treated fairly.


We design our programmes of work to meet the diverse needs of the population we represent and challenge inequality in the following ways.


  • Work to ensure our evidence-base more accurately represents the diversity of the communities we serve.
  • Involve and consult with individuals and groups with specific experience of issues relating to equalities, diversity, and inclusion as necessary.
  • Develop our services through local partnerships where appropriate.
