Building Better Opportunities update November 2015big esf
In November we learnt that our stage 1 ESF partnership application to the Big Lottery Fund was successful. Thank you to all those that participated. Called ‘Family Matters in the Black Country’, it responds to one of the 4 ESF/Big project outlines for the Black Country – Families in Poverty – worth £3.4 million. We are now busy working with our named delivery and strategic partners to prepare the stage 2 application for March 2016.
Three other organisation – Heart of England Community Foundation, Steps to Work and WHG/Accord Housing Group were also successful with the other three Black Country ESF project outlines and we are working closely with them over the next few months.
There will be a further update in the New Year.
