We’re delighted that between January and March 2024, we were able to make an amazing 89 grants to community projects across Greater Manchester, providing a total of £240,536 in funding.

On average, each project we support connects with 60 people, meaning over 5,340 local people took part in activity which brought them together with others in their area. And between all of the funded groups, there are 1,347 regular volunteers, so a big thank you to them for making fabulous things happen!

A massive thank you to our brilliant funding programmes: Auto Trader Community Fund, Bright Futures Fund, FM Awards, Full Circle Funeral Partners, Great Stuff Awards, Greater Manchester Disaster Relief Fund, Neighbourhood Health and Wellbeing Fund, This is Manchester, and the Voicescape Community Fund.
