The Heart of England Community Foundation helps people in Warwickshire and the West Midlands conurbation to lead happier healthier lives. To do this they connect generous donors with groups like ours who need help. They have arranged for three donors to fund an expansion of our work.
Who the funders are
The donors who will be funding us are The David East Fund, the Harry Payne Fund and the Birmingham & Black Country Communities’ Fund. This is because many of our service users work with people from the areas that they cover.
How will we spend the grant?
We shall be using the grant to help us fund a new follow-up worker. This person will support service users after we have completed their applications for welfare benefits and compensation.
