Heart of England Community Foundation

Inclusive Communities Fund

The Inclusive Communities Fund is set to ignite communities across the WestMidlands to imagine, propose, and bring to life solutions that directly address the challenges in their neighbourhoods and local areas. This Fund is inspired by the momentum generated by the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, which provided support to community-based organisations across the WestMidlands, enabling access to exciting opportunities and fresh funding streams. 

The Fund aims to strengthen the achievements, prompted by the Games, offering community organisations access to new funding to make a difference for the people they work with. The Fund will serve as a catalyst to address inequalities, forging deeperconnections between individuals and organisations to continue the legacy of the Games. 

This Fund shares the four original core mission principles of the Commonwealth Games: 

  • Bringing people together 
  • Improving health and wellbeing 
  • Helping the region to grow 
  • Putting the region on the map 

Grants will be available for works, activities and services that will contribute to the four coremissions, and which fall within one or more of the following three themes: 

  • Physical activity and sport 
  • Mental health and well-being 
  • Arts, culture and creativity
