The Innovation Fund is the Partnership’s grass root programme which offers grant funding for community organisations to deliver, test or scale up ideas or address emerging tensions. All project activities are intended to engage all communities with primarily focus on those in poorer deprived communities.
Due to COVID19, we’ve extended our deadline to the 31 July 2020.
We recognise that activities and ideas that deliver on our commitment may be limited due to social distancing measures and self isolation guidelines, we therefore request interested applicants contact us in May 2020 to discuss.
Do you have an idea that we can fund that builds on the Stronger Communities Together Strategy and promotes the Bradford For Everyone ethos?
The Stronger Communities Partnership Board is inviting local groups to come forward with their innovative ideas to help improve integration outcomes with its third round of the Innovation Fund. We will offer individual awards between £2,500 and £5,000 through the Participatory Budget mechanism. We can help you with your proposal; connect you with other delivery partners and help design monitoring of your proposal to measure successful outcomes. The total amount available for this pot is £50,000. Download the guidance document for further information.
We have developed and commissioned a wide range of projects that engage with a diverse group of people living across our district. All our projects have been chosen following lots of discussions with local people and organisations and collectively we have sought to include these in our activities. By March 2021 we will have commissioned over 40 projects, which will aim to engage and reach over 38,000 people.
Our current Partners include;
