Published date: 
Tuesday, 23rd July 2019

Oldham Community Safety and Cohesion Partnership (CSCP) is keen to invest in inspiring ideas from community groups and organisations who will work with us to promote healthy relationships, and to support young people and families affected by domestic violence and abuse and prevent them from becoming involved in violence themselves.  

Do you have a brilliant idea that will build resilience and capacity in communities by:

  • Promoting a culture of respectful healthy relationships 
  • Challenging attitudes that promote violence and abuse 
  • Developing aspirations of young people and adults
  • Engaging individuals and groups who do not traditionally work with services

You have an opportunity to apply for up to £10,000 from the Standing Together Community Grant, supported by the Oldham Community Safety and Cohesion Partnership and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority

Successful projects and ideas will focus on preventing and reducing the harm caused by seeing, hearing or engaging in violence, which contribute to a long term legacy of reducing the number of violent incidents which occur.

We are looking to support projects and ideas that help to meet at least one of the priorities and objectives of the following plans:

Greater Manchester Standing Together Plan:

  • Keeping people safe
  • Reducing harm and offending; and
  • Strengthening communities and places

Oldham Community Safety and Cohesion Plan:

  • Tackle crime and anti-social behaviour
  • Protect people and communities from harm
  • Reduce offending and re-offending
  • Build confident and cohesive communities
  • Build and strengthening partnerships

We are particularly keen to support small community groups and organisations.

The Oldham CSCP is working in partnership with StreetGames to reduce incidents of violence through sports, dance or other creative physical activity, and we are particularly keen to support applications for projects which will deliver these types of activities.
