Closing on Wednesday 20th April, awards of between £1,000 – £5,000 are available to community groups in Harpurhey and Moston, through the Fourteen Programme.

These funds are available to community projects which seek to contribute at least one of the following Fourteen programme outcomes:

  • Improve perceptions towards disability and impairment; understanding ‘disability’ as an individual with a physical or mental impairment that impacts on their ability to carry out daily activities
  • Improve individual wellbeing, understanding wellbeing as “feeling good and functioning well”
  • Overcoming isolation through providing opportunities for individuals to participate or volunteer; to feel valued in their community; and, to ensure all role models are celebrated
  • Connecting Communities through providing opportunities for individuals to engage and actively contribute in their community, ensuring people are proud of the place they live and are confident in making friends

Available via the Fourteen programme, funds are available to groups operating within the boundaries in the map below:

What is Fourteen?

Fourteen is a programme funded by Spirit of 2012, a charity set up by the Big Lottery Fund to connect events to communities across the country; tackling disadvantage by supporting opportunities in sport, physical activity, culture and the arts, volunteering and social action.

Forever Manchester is managing the Fourteen programme in Manchester, where it will support the communities of Harpurhey and Moston. As part of this work we are delivering a range of activity, which includes FM awards.
