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. We have had a fantastic response, we thank everyone who has participated and has been involved in our work. 29 projects have been successful in all three rounds.

All of our rounds have now closed.
