On the weekend of 30 June and 1 July 2018, the West Midlands Combined Authority want to encourage communities to come together and celebrate our region’s diversity as part of the West Midlands Mayor’s Community Weekend.
We’re working in partnership with the Big Lottery Fund who will be offering grants of up to £500 to groups who want to run an event. The event can be anything that brings your local community together such as organising a community picnic in the park a community sports day, volunteering for gardening duties or community painting.
What we want to see?
We want to fund events that seek to bring different communities and generations together, and that promote health and wellbeing. We’re keen to see that events are led by people.
This means that the people in your community are part of the development, design and delivery of your event.
Show us that you’ve spoken to them, taken on board their ideas and got them involved in your activities.
We’re also keen to see events that are community focused, bringing people together who wouldn’t usually interact, and events with a long term vision, with plans for what will happen afterwards, looking at how relationships will be sustained.
