Who funds the Sandwell Business Ambassadors programme?

Being a Sandwell Business Ambassador is a voluntary role. Ambassadors attend meetings and carry out Ambassador work in addition to their normal jobs and running their own organisations, without a fee.

The programme has a modest budget for editorial content and social media communications (usually 10-20 hours per month) which is paid for by the council.
