The Foundation Gets CUF Grant

On Wednesday, 5th April, the Church Urban Fund (or CUF) awarded a grant of £5,000 to the Wesleyan Holiness Church and the Foundation for Reach Society.
The grant is for undertaking a research project or feasibility study into the existence of ongoing programmes for inspiring local young people, in the Black community in the City of Wolverhampton, in order to develop their potential; and to pilot an inspirational activity with this target group.
 
The Foundation is grateful to CUF for their willingness to assist us to achieve the objective of inspiring young people in urban areas outside of Greater London. It is also pleased to be working with a local partner, the Wesleyan Holiness Church, to pilot this innovative project in the City of Wolverhampton.
