External Funding

"By working together, Wyre Forest in 2014 will be a prosperous district where everyone can thrive at work and at play, at home and in the community, and can learn and develop throughout their lives in a safe, attractive and healthy environment."

Community Strategy Vision April 2004


We use our influence to promote and improve the economic, social and environmental well being of the district in the best interests and for the greatest benefit of all present and future inhabitants, residents, businesses and visitors.

We are increasingly dependent on securing funding from sources other than its own budgets to meet priorities and those of the community. This trend is set to continue with an increasing reliance on partnerships, exemplified by the role of Wyre Forest Local Strategic Partnership, Wyre Forest Matters.

The Community Strategy Vision adopted by Wyre Forest Matters is the aspiration that is motivating us and our partners to improve the district, and this is where the need for external funding becomes paramount.

We monitor the external funding we receive for projects in the District.
