A new fund, which will see money invested in the local voluntary and community sector and boost support for adults, children and young people across the borough, will be launched next month.
Dudley Council has earmarked funding to be reinvested as part of its special voluntary sector innovation fund. The council is looking for groups and organisations, with new and innovative ideas, which will help improve the lives of adults, children and young people.
Groups and organisations of any size can put forward project plans but to be successful they must show their ideas are new, innovative, sustainable and able to show how they will improve the lives of local people. Groups interested in getting involved can find out more at the launch event on Tuesday December 5 at Revival Fires, Wolverhampton Street, Dudley.
People must register their attendance for the event in advance via eventbrite at https://dudleyinnovationfund.eventbrite.co.uk/
People will be able to get support to develop their ideas during a series of drop-in sessions, which will take place from December through to January. Groups will then be invited to pitch their project in full at an event in March next year, before a final decision is made on the allocation of funding.
