Aims/priorities: GMCVO are delivering a grants programme to support people from communities of identity or experience, based in Greater Manchester, that may struggle to achieve higher levels of mental wellbeing. Following the success of year 1 of the programme, a second year has been agreed which will build on the lessons learned and successful projects from the first year. You can find a full list of grants awarded in year 1 here.
The communities we want to reach in year 2 are:
- People from BAME communities*
- People living with long term physical or mental health conditions
- People who identify as LGBTQI
- Disabled people
- Military veterans
- People who are unemployed
- Socially isolated older people
Funded by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, a total of £90,000 will be awarded in year 2 between August and November 2021.
Who can apply? Not-for-Profit organisations.
Grant amount: Between £100 - £750
Application process: The grants will be awarded, in two stages, to small, grassroots VCSE organisations that will support people to develop high levels of mental wellbeing. An eligibility test and application form can be found on the funders website.
