Friends Meeting House
Do you want to improve your community? Got an idea? Or looking for inspiration?
We are looking for people who were born outside of the UK and want to get involved locally in the West Midlands.
We want to nurture and fund creative grassroots projects in order to met social challenges.
We are looking for refugees and migrants in Coventry who want to develop new and innovative projects that build friendly and positive relationships in their communities.
Each successful project idea is granted up to £5,000 as seed funding and given mentoring in setting up a community project which focuses on employment, health, housing or active citizenship.
We are kicking off with ‘Community Innovation’ workshops where you can find out more about how to get involved in your community, and how to set up your own project.
The workshops will be a chance for people to:
- Hear about ideas that have worked and get inspired
- Learn how to turn your idea into action
- Meet like-minded people
Who should attend:
- Individuals, or a group of individuals, born outside of the UK who are keen to set up or get involved with a community project, or who already have an idea for a project
- Existing third sector organisation, such as a voluntary or community organisation, wanting to set up a new project
We recommend that those who come to the workshop have a good understanding of spoken English to get the most out of it. You can also bring a friend who can translate. There will be written material provided in English, but it is not essential for people to read and write.
You are welcome to bring children under 3 years old with you – please let us know if you plan to bring children. Please contact us if you have any questions. Tea, coffee, biscuits and fruit will be provided. Please contact us if you need support with travel expenses.
Please note, we do not need details of participants immigration status.
