Hold the date: Voluntary Sector Innovation Fund Round Two- Launch Event Date: Tuesday 12th March

Venue: Amblecote Christian Centre,102-104 Brettell Lane, Amblecote DY8 4BS Following the successful launch of the Voluntary Sector Innovation Fund in December 2017, Dudley Council is about to launch Round 2 of this exciting initiative for the borough. The background to the Fund was the recognition by the Health and Wellbeing Board that we need to work together to do things differently in Dudley to achieve longer, safer, healthier lives for all. We have a strong history across Dudley borough of people working together to improve their local communities. In order to support this approach, Dudley Council has identified the Voluntary Sector Innovation Fund to enable people in our local communities to do more of the things they do best. We all have an active role to play in helping to make this happen – individuals, families, communities, organisations and local politicians. We are inviting you to this event to find out more about how this different way of investing money in our communities might benefit you in supporting new, innovative ideas for improving health and wellbeing. If you are from a voluntary, community or faith sector group or organisation and you are working with communities in Dudley borough, please come along to find out about this exciting initiative. Please register for the event using this link:...
