Funding and grants for the voluntary and community sector
Our Manchester VCS Grants 2023-2026
This fund is now closed for applications.
The Our Manchester VCS Grants Programme is our largest grants programme for the voluntary and community sector (£2.4m per year). Following engagement and a co-design process, the new programme opened for applications on Thursday 1 September 2022 and closed on Monday 10 October 2022.
The purpose of this grant programme is to support and invest in a healthy and thriving local voluntary sector, so that it can continue to support Manchester’s residents and focus on what the sector excels at in addressing some of the city’s highest priorities.
The fund is primarily aimed at supporting groups that work with adults and that address one or more of the following aims:
- Addressing inequalities and building inclusion
- Promoting communities’ health and wellbeing
- Tackling poverty
All applications are now being reviewed and applicants will be contacted in December, with a decision on their application.
