Funding and Support

We help to develop community groups through training, funding and networking to build a sustainable network of community activity in Ladywood Constituency


The small grant fund is mainly for new community activities, where gaps have been identified, for adults over 50 or adults with a disability. 

Up to £10,000 for new community activities.
Up to £2,000 to increase accessibility of and participation in existing community activities.
Up to £250 can be awarded for simple resources or one off events.  

Funding can also provide investment in community development and infrastructure support. The full guidance is here and your starting point is to talk to a support worker.

Birmingham and Solihull Dementia Strategy Action Plan 2022-2027

This report was published by the Chief executive NHS Birmingham and Solihull Integrated Care Board and Birmingham City Council and Solihull Council….

(Download the report here)

The Dementia Strategy is an overview of how health and social care will work together across Birmingham and Solihull to improve the lives of people with dementia and those who look after them. We have asked people with dementia, their carers, those who live in Birmingham and Solihull and our partners in health and social care what we should focus on to improve the care and support we provide to people. We have discussed all areas of dementia care, from activities aimed at preventing dementia, through to care at the end of people’s lives. The detailed Dementia Strategy: Action Plan, will hold us accountable for the improvements we will make over the next five years.

In order to identify the development needs of local organisations and enterprises in Ladywood a skills audit was undertaken of community assets. This proceeded the delivery of NNS pop up awareness sessions delivered across Ladywood localities by the Manager and Project Co-ordinator during November. These engagement sessions highlighted the key aims/priorities and the development support which would be tailored around identified needs of local assets.
