Three Midland organisations are to get a slice of more than £110 million being ploughed into helping tackle homelessness, mental health problems, addiction and offending.
The Big Lottery Fund is sharing a total of £112m in grants between 12 areas across the country - including Birmingham, Nottingham and Stoke-on-Trent.
The money will be spent on creating better communication between different groups, to create a more coordinated system for helping.
Birmingham's BVSC, Nottingham's Framework Housing Asssociate and Stoke's Brighter Futures have all been awarded just under £10m each.
