Doing Things Differently

We recognise that organisations may need to work differently during these unprecedented times to ensure the needs of communities are met.

This new grant programme reflects our mission to support Birmingham, the Black Country, Coventry, Solihull  and Warwickshire based organisations in the best way we can through this difficult time.

‘Doing Things Differently’ – there’s grants of between £3,000 and £20,000 available to enable organisations to change the way they deliver their work to continue to meet the developing needs of their communities during Covid -19. This could include moving services to provide them digitally or redeploying staff to meet the changing needs of the community.

The funding is not to replace core costs, or a loss of income, if you have had to close your services due to Covid 19.

This fund is for organisations who are deeply rooted in their community.




  • Organisations with an annual income of up to £500,000
  • You will need to submit a copy of your most recent annual accounts
  • Provide a timeframe of activities and detailed breakdown of budget for up to 6 months of activity
  • You will need to submit your most recent bank statement (must be within the last 3 months)
