Partnership & funding opportunity open to community organisations in Wigan – closing soon


About the opportunity

This is a unique one-off opportunity to join a youth led, cross sector initiative that’s using a Youth-Centred Design approach and principles of gender transformative programming to tackle growing mental health and wellbeing issues and concerns affecting young people. 

We are looking to work with Greater Manchester-based community groups and charitable organisations that are already delivering to young people in their area and would like to join us to co-design and deliver bespoke initiatives strengthening young people’s resilience. 

What is exciting about this opportunity is that it not only gives organisations a chance to design their initiatives from scratch with young people they work with, but it also gives them access to funding necessary to delivery those initiatives (between £12 000 – £15000). 

Detailed overview of the opportunity can be found here – and a copy of Terms of Reference is also attached as a PDF. 

Call for Expressions of Interest is now open.

Closing date for submissions is 7 February 2022 at 11.59pm.  


On the 28 January we are holding an information and overview webinar dedicated to this opportunity. Organisations wishing to attend can register for the event here.  

Several one-to-one sessions will be also available by request for those who cannot make the date of the webinar, these sessions are limited and can be requested by sending an email to .
