Increasing Skills – Providing Training – Moving Into Employment – Driving Growth!
Community Matters is a new £5million project funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund which aims to generate greater prosperity in communities across the Black Country.
The Heart of England Community Foundation will distribute this funding to 20 partner organisations over the next three years. The foundation will manage and support the activities of these partners as part of the Building Better Opportunities programme. This programme is a nationwide network of projects aiming to tackle the root causes of worklessness, to promote social inclusion and to drive local growth.
Our project operates across Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton. Activities delivered by our partners include 1-1 mentoring, accredited training, CV workshops, substance misuse counselling and much more.
