Our Manchester Voluntary and Community Sector Grants Programme launched

A new voluntary and community sector grant scheme has been launched. Called the Our Manchester Voluntary and Community Sector Grants Programme, the new scheme replaces a range of existing funds, bringing them together into a single grants programme managed by the Council. It is aimed at voluntary and community-sector organisations with a track record of delivering services to Manchester communities. 

Applicants must deliver activities and services that fit the Our Manchester principles of creating a thriving skilled city that is a great place to live, filled with talent, and fair to everyone, where organisations work together to build relationships and connect people. 

Applications for funding run for a six-week period from 4 September to 16 October 2017. Find out more or apply now at
