We were delighted to provide £17,652 of funding to support 20 grassroots community groups across Greater Manchester.

We believe that connected communities make stronger, happier communities, so we love any activity that brings people together. Forever Manchester Awards supports groups to run activities to do just that.

Forever Manchester Awards aims to 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.

In this last round of the Forever Manchester Awards, (application deadline 26th May 2023), awards of up to £1,000 were available.

The groups we were delighted to support include:
