We fund many voluntary and community sector organisations. They’re an important part of the city providing care, support and help to Manchester people.
We want to make sure we get the best value for money, and provide that money in a way that helps organisations to do good work.
Over the past few months we have been working with a ‘co-design group’ made up of people from the council, voluntary and community sector organisations and the NHS, to come up with some new options for funding the voluntary sector in Manchester. We’ve based these proposals on the Our Manchester Strategy.
Now we want your views.
Specifically we want your views on our proposals for:
- the priorities we think we should have for voluntary and community sector funding
- the principles we will follow when deciding who to give funding to
- two options for funding schemes we could use
- infrastructure support – the support, advice and training we give voluntary and community sector organisations on things like management, finance and volunteering, and giving those organisations a voice.
You can also see the areas of funding affected by these proposals.
This consultation closed on Sunday 12 February.
