Birmingham City Council (BCC) has launched a Local Innovation Fund (LIF). It will make £48,000 available to each electoral ward in the city. The money is intended to fund projects ‘that focus on partnership, collaboration, active citizenship and doing things differently’.
The Moseley and Kings Heath Community Partnership is holding a meeting at 7pm on Tuesday 13 December 2016 to discuss the fund and the ways in which it might be applied in Moseley and Kings Heath.
If you have thoughts on how £48,000 could be used to the benefit of local residents, please come to the meeting.
Date: Tuesday, 13 December 2016
Venue: The Moseley Exchange, 149-153 Alcester Road, B13 8JP
You can find more information about the fund on Birmingham City Council’s website.
Change it! is a competition for young social entrepreneurs, and is being organised by Moseley Community Development Trust and Moseley Post Office.
The competition aims to help young people (aged 18–30) launch ventures that can change the neighbourhood where they live for the better. Entrants should live in Balsall Heath (B12), Moseley (B13) or Kings Heath (B14) and their business idea should benefit one or more of these neighbourhoods.
There’s a chance to win 12 months co-working membership (worth over £1,000) at the Moseley Exchange.
You can find out more at an event on 30 April 2014, starting 6pm at the Moseley Exchange, 147 Alcester Road, Moseley, B13 8JP.
