The City of Wolverhampton Council has launched the first round of Community Grants funded by Wolverhampton’s local allocation of UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UK SPF).
Wolverhampton-based voluntary community sector organisations can apply for grants between £20,000 and £60,000 for individual organisations or more if part of a partnership/consortium to support local residents around local place-based priorities including:
- Financial wellbeing
- Digital inclusion
- Employment and skills
Interventions that cut across these priorities are welcome.
Funding is limited and must be spent in the 2023/24 financial year. We anticipate a further round during 2023/24 subject to funding being available and 2024/25 subject to approval of year 3 grant.
