New funding launched for LGBTQ+ community groups in Birmingham

In partnership with Birmingham City Council and Heart of England Foundation Trust, Birmingham LGBT has launched a new pilot project to fund LGBTQ+ community groups in Birmingham. As part of the NNS Connected Communities Microfund, grassroots LGBTQ+ community groups in the city can apply for up to £500 to fund their activities, and become part of Birmingham’s Neighbourhood Network Scheme Connected Communities.

As well as funding, this scheme offers a package of support, including: information and support to set up or develop group activities, access to training and networking events, and connections with other funds and funders, including Heart of England Community Foundation grants.

The scheme is open to applications from already existing groups as well as those who want to set up a group. If you are based in Birmingham and you’re interested in this project then get in touch with Maria Hughes at Birmingham LGBT: or call 0121 643 0821.
