Black Country Together CIC was founded in 2013 by the four Councils for Voluntary Service in the Black Country with the aim of increasing levels of funding coming into the sub-region. We believe that locally-designed, locally-delivered solutions to social challenges offer the best outcomes for communities and the best value for funders.
We are a young and vibrant organisation with a strong track record of success, which this role will contribute towards. Family Matters is one of the 4 projects making up Building Better Opportunities in the Black Country, funded by the European Social Fund and Big Lottery. It represents a huge opportunity for the Black Country, and our 19 strong partnership delivery team will work with 1,600 Black Country people and their families to develop a journey that is right for them and can move them closer to the mainstream labour market.
