Apply for funding

We support local charities, community groups and organisations who are based or operate within the City of Manchester. **Please note this does not extend to the wider Greater Manchester area.

Applications for individuals will be considered but must be nominated by a sponsor or third party. This can be an organisation or group on behalf of the individual, for example a school, social or support worker.

Applying for funding

Please note, applicants, sponsors or third party organisations that have access to incoming resources in excess of £100,000 per annum will not be considered.

Applying for funding is really straight forward. Simply download our guidance notes and grant application form and return it via email to the address below. Please complete each section of the application form, provide enough supporting evidence and give written quotes for all costs.
