Tameside Community Recovery Fund

Tameside Community Recovery Fund is a Participatory Budgeting event where local communities can have a say and vote for their favourite community project.

TMBC Community Safety are leading on this with assistance from Action Together supported by partner organisations. Greater Manchester Combined Authorities (GMCA) are funding £40,000 across Tameside communities - £10,000 has been allocated for each neighbourhood area: North, East, South and West. The idea being that after the effects of Covid 19, communities can rebuild and recover and come together to develop greener, safer, stronger communities. It’s about recognising that everyone has something to give without exception and by giving people the tools to use their skills, great things can happen for them and for the community.

Organisation   Project



Ambitions provide social activates such as; disco’s, outings, physical activities and a social club to young adults with leaning and physical disabilities. Their aim is to listen to their members and whenever possible put their requests into actions. Ambitions activities are there to build our members with confidence, encourage them to make new friends, promote independence and because our discos are held in public places, integrate them fully into the wider society.

At the moment they work out of the ‘Engine Room’ Pub in the centre of Ashton-Under-Lyne and the discos are attended by members from all over the Tameside Area (Ashton, Dukinfield, Stalybridge, Hyde etc.
