NNS Small Grants Programme Summary

POhWER are working on behalf of Birmingham City Council to support citizens over 50 in the community to live healthy, independent lives.  The Neighbourhood Network Scheme helps connect older people to individuals, groups, organisations, activities, services and places in their neighbourhoods. 

A major role of the NNS is to identify gaps / support existing assets and develop new ones. Our combined focus is working with the community groups (Assets) and then the social work teams to support the Assets to connect – indirectly helping older by supporting the community groups (Assets) that support them.

Our Small Grants Scheme is designed to support Assets in the Hodge Hill Constituency with funds of up to £10,000, especially those working at grass roots and local community level, in any field, across a wide range of activities.  Community assets are considered as any group, organisation, place, activity or service which offers an activity that an older adult can participate in.

The fund streams are broken down into three ways to apply for a grant.
