Forever Manchester has developed a new awards programme which strips away the bureaucracy associated with traditional grant applications.

The FM Awards started with the notion that Forever Manchester is different. For years grant-making has been about ticking boxes and looking for disadvantage and need. We want local people to tell us what’s great about their local community, what they want to do to improve it and how they will work together to do it using their own skills, talents and resources. This is based on our asset-based community development approach.

The FM Awards provides the opportunity for your community group or project to get your hands on £1,000 to help your group to continue to benefit the wider community.
