Firs & Bromford Neighbours Together (FBNT) is a community group funded by the Lottery Community Fund as part of their Big Local funding programme.
FBNT is an independent community group, coordinated by local residents, for local residents.
£1 million became available in 2014 and will run until 2026. A "Partnership Board" made up of residents decide on an annual basis how to spend the funds each year. To date the Partnership Board has spent approximately £80,000 per year.
No Partnership Board member is paid for their time - it is all voluntary. The Board makes grants to various organisations who help contribute to the community life of Firs and Bromford and help us achieve our vision. The FBNT Partnership Board welcomes new members who are willing to come together for the benefit of the whole community.
We also welcome ideas for new neighbourhood projects - not things for other people to do - things that you want to do to make your street or neighbourhood a better place.
