The Building Better Lives capital grants programme was launched in 2018 following an anonymous donation.
The donors have a vision of offering three charities, who provide housing solutions to vulnerable people, with an opportunity to receive up to £1m to renovate, restore or build additional housing.
The Foundation made the donor’s vision a reality.
After a rigorous process with some brilliant pro bono expertise we were delighted to announce the three charities that will benefit from Building Better Lives. To find out more about the builds, please click here.
2021 will be the year we see these builds flourish, creating life changing accommodation and facilities that will benefit the West Midlands for years to come.
The grants are, by-far, the largest ever awarded by the Foundation and are seen as a major step change. It’s proof that Heart of England Community Foundation can adapt and deliver grant programmes of any size to solve whatever need there is in the West Midlands.
The first build is now up and running, find out more about St Basils’ Lorna Esien Court here.
