The Building Better Opportunities programme is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery, through the Big Lottery Fund who are co-investing in local projects tackling the root causes of worklessness, promoting social inclusion and driving local jobs and growth.

Community Matters is one of four projects within this programme across the Black Country and will help people across Walsall, Wolverhampton, Dudley and Sandwell move into or closer to employment by developing their skills and confidence.

Community Matters is managed by the Heart of England Community Foundation in partnership with 19 local organisations across the Black Country.

Zebra Access is one of those partners. We will be working alongside the following partners to deliver the project; Access to Business, Accord Age Matters, Ashley Community Housing Ltd, Bilston Resource Centre, Black Country Housing Group, Dudley Caribbean and Friends Association, Ideal For All, Just Straight Talk, Kids in Communication, Manor Farm Community Association, Refugee and Migrant Centre, Summit House Support, SWEDA, TLC College, Walsall College, Walsall Housing Group, WELL Associates and Workers Educational Association (WEA).
