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 in 2021 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 distributing £4,000 to voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups across Oldham. View Let’s End Hate Crime 2021 - Projects Funded.
Oldham Council has been awarded funding from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s (MHCLG) Community Champions Programme. MHCLG’s stated purpose of the funding is ‘to support people shown to be most at risk from Coronavirus (COVID-19) including those from an ethnic minority background, disabled people and others to follow safer behaviours and reduce the impact of the virus on themselves and those around them’.

The Community Response Fund was launched in March 2020 after the World Health Organisation had declared a pandemic. It was available for Oldham groups from the voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise (VCFSE) sector working on a COVID-19 Community Response.
