SCVO Vision 2030 Community Grants – Vision 2030 sets out the ambitions towards making Sandwell (in 2030) a thriving, optimistic and resilient community. Central to this vision is the message of closer partnership working between all sectors and communities across the borough. The aspiration is for Sandwell (now and in the future) to be where we call home and where we’re proud to belong – where we choose to bring up our families, where we feel safe and cared for, enjoying good health, rewarding work, feeling connected and valued in our neighbourhoods and communities, confident in the future, and benefiting fully from a revitalised West Midlands.
SCVO is delivering this grant programme, on behalf of and in partnership with Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council, to enable voluntary and community groups to deliver activities in Sandwell, and to Sandwell residents, to support the following priorities:
- Building Social Connections (tackling loneliness/social isolation)
- Youth Activities (tackling loneliness/social isolation amongst young people)
- Healthy Lifestyles (promoting / supporting healthy living)
- Vaccination Support (activities that encourage, inform or enable Sandwell residents to take up the vaccination opportunity)
Paperwork for the programme is available as follows:
