World Cafe – Funding

On the 30th of September 2017, Selly Oak Neighbourhood Team held a World Café event to try and establish the concerns of people living and working in Selly Oak Ward. 

 We have a budget from the Active Citizens fund of £6,918 to provide funds to tackle the local issues identified by the community and partners, and want to fund as many projects as we can.

 The Active Citizens fund is to create new local community capacity and allow local community projects to develop.  This fund is open to new local groups or existing groups but not to individuals.  The groups applying need not be based in Selly Oak, but must carry out their project in this area, be a constituted group and have a bank account.

If you need help creating your own constitution and getting a bank account we can work with you to achieve this but tell us at an early stage.

Following the World Café event, bids are now invited to tackle the following priorities which have been identified for Selly Oak – 

  • Speeding
  • Burglary
  • Anti-Social Behaviour – including fly tipping
  • Student Letting issues – including irresponsible landlords

 In order to be considered, projects will need to create new community capacity, they must be sustainable, and must tackle one or more of the priorities identified by the community.

 If you would like more information or an application form, please contact Sgt Tedstill via f.tedstill@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk

Completed applications need to be sent to Sgt Tedstill on the above email address by 4pm on Monday 20th November 2017.  They will then be reviewed by a locally formed scrutiny panel who will decide which bids are successful by the end of November 2017
