Pounds Raised

About Our Project



Many black businesses, who contribute enormously to Birmingham’s economy, have been severely hit because of COVID-19 and recent start-up businesses are at risk.

Financial support from the government is available. However, applications have been particularly low from the black community due to lack of communication and trust, knowledge or access to community leaders.

The most important thing for us at The Black Pounds Project is to make it possible for black business owners, however small, to access the business and financial help that will help them to kick start their business.   We want to breakdown barriers, build up trust and confidence and work alongside them every step of the way at this unprecedented time.

For successful applicants, The Black Pounds Project will support each business over a nine-month period and, as the project develops, the team will compile a directory of high quality, professional black owned businesses that everyone can benefit from.

We will ask for businesses to submit a monthly blog post to our website so that project supporters can check progress, send messages of encouragement and build relationships.

There will also be business workshops and mentorship schemes for those whose applications have not been successful first time round, so that they can better understand and develop their own business ideas.
