Projects funded by Community First Fund
Year 1

Acresfundraisers
This funding enabled the group to part fund the Summer Community Day on Saturday 23rd June 2012 providing exciting activities for children to enjoy and try new skills e.g. climbing and encourage community cohesion.

African Women's Project
The funding enabled the homework club which has been running for a number of years to continue.   To give local children the opportunity to increase their skills and improve their educational achievement.

Alliance United Cricket Club
This project increased volunteering in the area, tackled health inequalities using sport, particularly cricket and increased the use of the local green spaces.   It also offered the opportunity to increase community cohesion.

Darnall Forum
The funding allocated to this project enabled some volunteers to take a prepared display about rubbish and fly tipping to a number of venues in Darnall where they talked to people about the issue.  They also took a bag of clean recyclable material and offered recycling activities particularly to children but also to anyone wanting to take part. The outcome was almost 300 conversations were held with members of the local community and a clean up was organised for the whole community.

Friends of High Hazels Park
The funding received by this group allowed them to improve the entrance to High Hazels Park.   A lot of rubbish was cleared, the flower beds weeded and some replanting took place where plants had died.  The ground maze was refurbished and a new sign and waste bin were erected at the entrance.    Some overgrown shrubs and trees were cut back.

Handsworth Community Forum
The funding this project received was used for a Community Health Event which helped raise awareness in the community of a number of health issues putting people in need with local providers who could help them.   There were a number of physical activities included in the day.   The event was open to all ages.

Phillimore Park Community Association
The funding received by this project was used to sustain a thriving youth club which offered cultural, social and educational activities for children and young people aged 10-19 raising awareness of the issues young people face including drug and alcohol abuse.

The Datic Trust Galeed House Project
The funding allocated to this project helped them to organise a 4 day event for families in August 2012 which culminated in a full day event on 25th August 2012.   The event brought the local community together to do fun activities including, team games, quizzes, and bring and share picnics.   The Saturday event included face painting, henna painting and many other attractions.

Tinsley Advice Service
Tinsley Advice Service received funding to sustain their advice work in Darnall and Tinsley. Offering support to clients who come from a range of cultural backgrounds, many of whom do not speak English and require language support to  access the information they need.   Advisors are often able to help clients to avoid more complicated difficulties by offering support and advice at an early stage.

Tinsley Forum
Used the funding they received to develop a project working with older people, encouraging them to access activities which already exist and develop new ones in an effort to increase participation in local groups and develop new ones to provide activities requested.   Support was offered to develop new groups e.g. information and help with policy and procedures, general information how to create a group.  They worked with other organisations to develop Health and Well Being activities as well as a Safer and stronger community.
