Funding to help get your group back up and running


We are delighted to announce that the latest round of Forever Manchester Awards is now open for applications for Community Groups in Greater Manchester.

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

For this round of Forever Manchester Awards we specifically want to fund community groups in Greater Manchester whose activities have been disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic and wish to get back up and running. We welcome applications from locally managed community groups based in any of the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester.

Groups can apply for what they need to allow them to get back up and running and connecting with the people in the local community. The maximum award request that will be considered is £1,000.  

Those groups that have already received funding from the Community Support Fund for Covid-19 response activity are not a priority for this round of Forever Manchester Awards.

Deadline for Applications:

We will close for applications at midday on Friday 2nd October 2020. Any applications received after this time will not be considered.

We aim to let groups know the outcome of their application by the end of November 2020.
