Socio-Economic Workstream Grants Programme Now Open
The Socio Economic Workstream (SEWS) is one of the groups which supports the delivery of the North Solihull Partnership. The SEWS focuses on how to deliver Social and Economic improvements across the North Solihull regeneration area. To aid the delivery of these improvements the workstream is responsible for a small pot of funding.
