How you can be involved
If you live or work in Erdington, we want you to be involved in running local services. You can raise issues which concern you and contribute to decision making in a number of ways:
- District Committee.
- Ward Committees provide a mechanism for members of the public to become involved in the decisions that affect their neighbourhood.
- Contact or meet the councillors.
- There are three or four Neighbourhood Forums in each ward in the district, involving a wide range of people.
- Send your comments to email@example.com.
- Call us on 0121 675 2923.
For 2012/13 all wards in the City receive a Community Chest allocation of £100,000. This allocation enables the wards to fund schemes which support ward and neighbourhood working or contribute to extending community engagement, cohesion and empowerment.
Projects supported through this fund must also demonstrate that they support one or more of the outcomes in Birmingham's Council Plan 2008-2013 and Birmingham's Community Strategy 2026.
Generally, any properly constituted organisation may submit a project proposal. You should first talk with the District Ward Support Officer to find out about what outcomes and locally identified priorities the Ward or District Committee is likely to support and the money that it has available. The Erdington District Ward Support Officer is John Mole, who can be contacted on 0121 464 8784, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Community First Programme is a national programme which runs over four years until 2015. 27 Wards in Birmingham have funding through Community first. The programme is independent of Birmingham City Council and is managed by a national organisation, appointed by the Government, called Community Development Foundation. Community First funding is distributed by a Community First Panel established in the Ward. A list of Community first Panels along with other information about this programme is available on the Community Development Foundation Website.There may be a number of other funding opportunities available, such as Big Lottery Funding for example. Your District Ward Support Officer can give you more information about this: John Mole, who can be contacted on 0121 464 8784, or email email@example.com.
