One GM Community Fund

Aims/priorities: The One GM Community Fund welcomes applications from grassroots community groups based in any of the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester. The Fund will support projects working in one of the following thematic areas:

  • Families and individuals experiencing food poverty
  • Support for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness
  • Community based mental health and well-being support

Should the Fund be oversubscribed the first two themes will be prioritised.

Local groups understand how they can best work in their communities, so they don’t want to limit the type of request you can make within the three activity themes. You just need to let them know what you want to do and what positive things your activity will provide for people in your community.

All activity must be covid-19 safe and undertaken in line with current government guidance at the time it takes place.

Who can apply? The One GM Community Fund aims to encourage and support grassroots community organisations. This means small, community-based and locally controlled groups that manage themselves, encourage people to get involved as volunteers and who just need a bit of financial help to be able to work with their community in the way they’d like.

Applicants must be based in one of the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester and have an annual income of less than £25,000. Applicants meeting the theme ‘Support for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness’ will be considered up to a maximum annual income of £75,000.

Grant amount: Up to £1,000

Application process: Applications can be made via the Forever Manchester Website.

Deadline: Midday on Friday 22 October 2021.
