Changing Futures Fund

Pulse is an approved provider for the Changing Futures Fund. The Changing Futures Fund is aimed at strengthening and developing the Voluntary and Community Sector in Worcestershire. Operated by Worcestershire County Council and the overall aim is to achieve the vision of a prosperous Worcestershire. 

What is The Fund?

Worcestershire has many Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) groups and Worcestershire County Council is keen to support as many as possible.

The Changing Futures Fund provides guidance and support to new, developing or more established VCS groups across the county. It connects groups with experts who guide organisations through what can often be really complex issues; for example organising financial systems, budgeting, procurement and marketing. 

Funding Support Available 

As an approved provider we are able to support VCS organisations in Worcestershire to apply for a voucher to apply for a funding support package which can then be used to provide your organisation with support in the following areas:

- Organisational Development

- New Ways of Working including Asset Transfer

- Bidding for Contracts to Provide Public Services

To be eligible VCS organisations must be based in Worcestershire and planning to set up or already be an organisation. There is a straightforward application process involving a quick diagnostic assessment and then selection of Pulse as you chosen provider.
