Making a Difference
to people's lives

Community Funds

We support and work with groups and partner agencies which make a positive contribution to the well-being of our tenants and communities.

We welcome applications from groups and organisations working within areas where Wrekin have homes. This includes community groups, local charities, resident associations & voluntary organisations. We prioritise projects that benefit the communities in which we work, our customers and their neighbourhoods.

As long as the work you’re planning is of lasting value to the people living in our communities, we want to work with you to try to make it happen.

Wrekin’s Community Chest

Wrekin’s Community Chest offers grants of up to £2,000 to support community projects and activities in communities where our customers live.

If you have a project that helps to make a positive difference to people’s lives we would like to hear from you.

If you would like to apply for the funding, please complete the expression of interest form and we will get in touch to discuss your application further.
