The latest round of the Citizen Local Fund is open

The first round of the Citizen Local fund for 2024 has opened and you have the chance to apply for up to £3,000.

The fund is for projects and initiatives which promote and support wellbeing, reduce isolation and enhance local areas.

Customers living in our communities can apply for a slice of the £50,000 funding which is available throughout this year.

In our previous round we supported 11 organisations across the West Midlands.

Customer engagement partner Caroline Arrow said: “We’re thrilled to be accepting applications for the latest round of the Citizen Local Fund.

“At Citizen we want to work with our partners to make a positive difference to our customers and communities – and the Citizen Local Fund sees us work with organisations across the West Midlands to do this.

“The fund is there for a range of projects – big or small. We’re keen to support anyone or any group that needs some support to help others.

“We’re looking forward to seeing the applications submitted over the next few weeks.”

Applications for the second round of funding close at 5pm on Monday 13 May. Our Customer Assurance Committee will help us to shortlist the successful bids.
