Take Part is an exciting national initiative bringing together a range of local people and organisations.

In the next two years in the Black Country we will work directly with over 100 citizens and 40 organisations to improve community engagement and increase the level of influence that people and communities have over the decisions that affect their lives.


The Black Country Take Part Pathfinder project is managed by Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council. It forms part of the Take Part Pathfinder programme which is funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government and managed by the Community Development Foundation.
