The Inclusive Communities Fund – Cannock Chase and Tamworth

The Inclusive Communities Fund is managed by the Heart of England Community Foundation, working in partnership with the Community Foundation for Staffordshire to deliver the fund across Cannock Chase & Tamworth.

The Inclusive Communities Fund is set to ignite communities across the West Midlands 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 West Midlands, enabling access to exciting opportunities and fresh funding streams.

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

  • Bringing people together
  • Improving health and well-being
  • 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 core missions, 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
