Black Country Together

Black Country Together CIC was founded in 2013 by the four Councils for Voluntary Service in the Black Country with the aim of increasing levels of funding coming into our sub-region and fostering greater co-operation and collaboration between voluntary organisations and local statutory agencies both within and across borough boundaries.

Talent Match

Black Country Together CIC were instrumental in securing over £10 million from the Big Lottery Fund to deliver Black Country Talent Match that supports young people aged 18-24, who face significant barriers to entering the world of work, to move nearer and into employment.

Our role included undertaking the development work and creating the partnership of strategic and delivery agencies.

Creative Black Country

Creative Black Country is an action learning project funded by Arts Council England through the Creative People and Places (CPP) programme to engage audiences in areas where evidence shows people are less likely to take part in publicly funded arts and culture.

CBC works with communities in Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton to explore and develop new creative projects with local people in the places where they live.


Building Better Opportunities: Family Matters


Family Matters is a three-year project to help people across the Black Country build the skills and confidence to get into work.

Family Matters is funded by the European Social Fund and Big Lottery Fund and will be delivered through 19 community organisations across the Black Country.
