Knowsley Council - two out of four; KNOWSLEY.
Knowsley has been given red flags for community cohesion and housing, under the new Comprehensive Area Assessment (CAA).
The Audit Commission said the area needs to improve services for homeless families and help prevent people from becoming homeless.
The council is now working with Knowsley Housing Trust to launch an improved service early next year.
In a separately released assessment, Knowsley Council was individually given a score of two out of four - having KNOWSLEY been judged as "adequate". Sheena Ramsey, Knowsley Council chief executive, said: "While we are disappointed with the new CAA, the most important thing to us is how residents view our services.
"We have some of the highest satisfaction rates in the country for services which are most important to residents, such as street cleaning, recycling, waste collection, libraries and leisure facilities.
"Our ability to provide value for money has been recognised once again, and we will use the same approach to improve the quality of life for all of our residents."
