At Action Together we recognise community action is taking place across Oldham and we want to encourage and support this action.
The Oldham Local Development Pilot is part of the Greater Manchester-wide GM Moving programme funded by Sport England to increase activity levels for people living in Greater Manchester. A big part of the project is understanding on a local level what it takes to secure ‘population scale change in physical behaviour’, through targeted local development pilot’s in each GM borough.

Through Action Together on behalf of Oldham Borough Council, The Community Safety and Cohesion Partnership Board (the Partnership) made funds available to support projects across the Oldham Borough that promote awareness of hate crime and how to report it. We were able to fund four groups to voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups across Oldham. View Let’s End Hate Crime - Projects Funded.
Oldham Council is working with Action Together to launch Phase 4 of the Household Support Fund.
The purpose of this fund is to provide a flexible cash first fund which can meet emergency needs for residents before financial challenges escalate. It is aimed at those from communities and in situations where offers from the existing structured system are less trusted, accessible or appropriate. As well as reducing the impact of the cost of living crisis for these residents who already face greater inequality, this will have the added benefit of building trust for future initiatives to work better and reducing the likelihood of those communities needing more expensive interventions further down the line.
