Following the recognition given to our local voluntary and community sector, with the awarding of 7 of the 13 Queens Awards given in the West Midlands to Wolverhampton organisations, we can now report further success for our local sector.

16 voluntary sector organisations based in Wolverhampton have been successful in securing grants of up to 10K each to help support people in our City to move nearer and into employment.

The successful organisations: Employability UK, BME United, Wildside Activity Centre, Ethnic MInority Council,  Employment Training Network, Aladdins Education, I-Enterskills, Beatsabar Music Project, Let us Play, Training and Community Services, Goodlife Community, Acts of Random Kindness, Jubilee Support Centre, The Crafty Gardener, BOS Business Office Solutions and Low Hill Park Village Community Association, illustrate the range and diversity of the brilliant Voluntary and Community Sector in our City.

The community grants programme is administered by Walsall Council with support from WVSC and other partners from across the Black Country. The grant programme runs until 2018 and funds are still available.
