Description

MAKE IT HAPPEN- IT’S BACK, BIGGER AND BETTER.

Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council Public Health Department are pleased to announce that the ‘Make It Happen’ initiative will be returning for a second time in October 2017. Following on from our successful event in April 2017, where 11 different projects received funding to initiate their ideas.

The Healthy Communities team are once again inviting groups and individuals that want to make things happen in Dudley to attend an exciting day of sharing and learning at DY1 community Building.

To help shape the future of community projects across Dudley Borough, up to £8,000 has been identified to support community-led projects. The event is a great way to network with other community groups to help share ideas, knowledge and resources to assist communities across the borough.

Groups will have the opportunity to provide a 3 minute pitch to showcase the importance of their projects and the difference it will make. After hearing each pitch, the audience will be invited to ask questions to gain more information about each endeavour. The panel will then come together to decide how funding will be allocated. The panel will include one Public Health Chief Officer, a Policy Officer, a Voluntary Sector Representative and three Young people.

Groups will be have the chance to network over an informal lunch supplied by ‘Lunch On The Run’, one of our successful projects from the previous ‘Make It Happen’ event in April. Participants will be encouraged to mingle and offer tangible resources to help support each other throughout the day.

Giving you a voice

We want to give people a voice and an opportunity to be part of the decision making process so attendees and participants of projects will be given the opportunity to vote for their favourite project. The only condition will be that you can’t vote for your own project. The winning project will receive the full amount of funding they pitch for; together with promotion from the Healthy Communities Team.
