spacer graphic Community First Panels in Sandwell
Community First funding is a government initiative managed by the Community Development Foundation.

It aims to fund voluntary activities and development in the most deprived wards in the country.

A total of 16 wards in Sandwell have been awarded this funding and voluntary sector groups in those areas can apply for a grant of up to £2,500.

The programme is managed by a panel in each of the 16 wards which is made of local people.

If you want to bid for funding you need to panel in your area directly.

Each panel has its own local priorities so please check to ensure your project idea corresponds to at least on of the local priorities.

Below is a list of all the wards, the contact details and website
addresses for each panel in Sandwell
