Communities Uncovered Fund

Our Communities Uncovered Fund will support us to explore solutions to some of the most pressing social issues facing the Black Country.

The Fund is designed to support the recommendations highlighted in our Communities Uncovered report which was released earlier this year.
We are focusing our attention at ward level, seeking to support the most deprived communities where we feel we can have the most impact.
We want to hear from organisations who have creative ideas and projects which can tap into local solutions for local people, helping to build thriving communities.



For more information about this fund please read our Fund Factsheet.

We will prioritise projects working in the most deprived areas of the Black Country. For more information about the 2015 Black Country Indices of Multiple Deprivation please click here.
