Community grants to help children and families

Birmingham City Council has announced £0.8m emergency funding to help children and families. Community, voluntary and faith groups who are helping children, young people and families through the challenges of Covid-19 are invited to apply for grants of up to £10,000 to continue supporting families through this difficult period.

Birmingham has flourishing communities which have stepped up heroically to support vulnerable people.  This announcement extends our community grant scheme for older people to reflect the needs of our city, and responds quickly to the Covid-19 emergency.

All voluntary, community and faith groups are invited to bid for funding to support their activities, through a simple and accelerated process designed to get the money out the door to where it will make the most difference. All support should be designed to prioritise prevention and early-help.
