Adult Social Care within Birmingham City Council are recommissioning the Prevention and Communities (P&C) grant programme The programme is now open for applications and is due to end at noon on Tuesday 09 May.


Adult Social Care carried out an engagement process during the summer of 2022 getting the views of over 530 stakeholders from social workers, to assets (community organisations) and citizens. Three events with the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector were held in August 2022. The slides that the commissioning team are used to explain the recommissioning programme and short survey about priorities and gaps can be seen here 

Cabinet Paper

The recommissioning was approved by the City Council’s Cabinet on 14 February 2022. The reports for this can be seen here. 

Since then the commissioning plan itself has been updated.

The value of the P&C Programme is £2,745m per annum including the Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) current contracts. There has been no change to the overall budget requirement for the P&C Programme since the last commissioning round in 2019.


In March 2023, the Prevention Commissioning team, hosted by BVSC, ran two online briefings for the wider voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector.
