Chance Heritage Trust: Community Engagement Project Tender

The Chance Heritage Trust, a member of the West Midlands IHN, is inviting tenders for a community engagement programme to inform proposals for the redevelopment of the Chance Brothers Glassworks and Soho Foundry and Mint sites in Sandwell. The project is funded by a Community Renewal Fund Grant.

The Chance Brothers Glassworks and Soho Foundry and Mint sites, anchoring the ends of the Galton Valley Conservation Area part of the Black Country UNESCO Geo Park, represent two important phases in Sandwell’s story. CHT plans to restore them to new working life. Because CHT is a community-owned and led organisation leading on large-scale, urban regeneration, the community is at the heart of our work. The projects they work on address the issues arising from multiple deprivation, including the impact of the pandemic. The impact of the regeneration of these two sites will have enormous positive impact on the whole area.

The Chance Heritage Trust intend to commission various additional strands of work across both sites. The current invitation is for a suitably qualified and experienced organisation to undertake the following:

  1. Raise the profile of the two sites.
  2. Consult on plans for future of Sandwell’s industrial heritage.
  3. Build our social media presence and contact database

Submission is by 17:00 on 12th January 2022. The appointment will be made w/c 20th January 2022 for delivery between 1st February 2022 and the end of June 2022. Further details on the application process and wider project should be sent to Dr Ellen McAdam at or by phoning 07808 122816. Further details about the Chance Heritage Trust can be found here:
