Help Needed to Support Older Erdington Residents
Birmingham City Council’s city-wide Neighbourhood Network schemes (NNS) have given local groups and organisations the chance to apply for grants of up to £10,000 in order to deliver services which benefit the wellbeing of older people.
Erdington NNS continues to work with residents, social workers and community & voluntary groups’ to promote the Small Grants Programme and fund initiatives and activities across the constituency.
Spokeswoman, Chantelle Holmes, said: “As part of our ongoing work, we are continually looking at opportunities which can help fill in any gaps of provision where support is needed. Service providers and users have helped to identify these shortfalls so we are reaching out to any voluntary groups and organisations we could commission to bridge these gaps.”
