Shaping Care Fund : Calls for Expression of Interest


Capturing the Voice of Cared for Children and Care Experienced Young People in Greater Manchester’s Regional Care Cooperative Pathfinder

Call for Expressions of Interest

Deadline: 12.00 noon on Monday 15th July 2024

Grants to support Greater Manchester based VCSE organisations engage with Cared for Children and Care Experienced Young People to give voice to their needs and wants from the care system.

Are you a VCSE organisation working with Cared for Children and/or Care Experienced Young People in Greater Manchester?  Are you interested in supporting young people give their voice to the shaping of the GM’s emerging Regional Care Cooperative (RCC)?

If so, we would like to hear from you. We are looking to fund social economy providers to creatively listen to the views of children and young people who are experiencing or have experienced, the care system and feedback their views to the RCC team.  

The aim of the Shaping Care Fund is to put the voice of children and young people at the centre of shaping the Regional Care Cooperative and inform the direction of future care services. It is important that projects that are successful in receiving this one-off funding demonstrate their capacity to deliver to short timescales and demonstrate their track record and skill set to work with the groups of young people highlighted above.

We will be investing locally within GM, with the Voluntary, Community, Faith & Social Enterprise(s) (VCFSE) sector to ensure a diverse range of young people are listened to and heard.
