Latest Programmes & Partnerships
On the weekend of Saturday 29 June and Sunday 30 June 2019, events will be taking place across the West Midlands to celebrate the Mayor’s Community Weekend. The aim of this is to celebrate diversity and bring people together – we want to encourage people to go out, engage in their local communities and increase social interaction.
The #iwill Fund will enable more young people to take part in social action through high quality opportunities which create lifelong habits.
Leaders with Lived Experience is a pilot programme providing National Lottery grants of between £20,000 and £50,000 to support lived experience leadership.

At this stage we expect to award between 15-20 grants.
