Are you a community group based in Birmingham looking to start a new activity? Here you find a list of funds, organisations and businesses that offer financial support, grants and funding.
Some of these are focusing on specific themes such as the environment, young people or social isolation, some have specific requirements around a specific need or geographic area. It's worth checking back, as we update this list about once a month. See which ones would fit your group and share with others you know would benefit from finding out in your local area.
