Forever Manchester are working with UK Community Foundations to distribute funding raised by the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal. This money is being distributed to community organisations responding to the needs of local communities across Greater Manchester via the Community Support Fund.

Brandlesholme Community Centre in Bury provides facilities to support the activities of a variety of local community groups alongside running a foodbank.

As a result of Covid-19 regular activities at the centre have ceased with the exception of the foodbank which enables the centre to continue supporting the community by providing a service to ensure local residents have access to basic food provisions.

The centre is also working alongside local housing providers and other community organisations to identify those most at risk including the elderly, vulnerable and unemployed in the area.

An award from Forever Manchester’s Community Support Fund has helped with the cost of food supplies and packages to help support the needs of approximately 150 people which are being distributed by foodbank volunteers.
