Due to extraordinary demand the We Love Manchester Large grant scheme is currently suspended and we are not accepting any new applications.  Please be advised that our small grants scheme remains open and we are welcoming applications. 

Manchester’s Rising Stars Fund

The Manchester’s Rising Stars Fund aims to give young Mancunians a helping hand to take opportunities that may otherwise be out of their reach. Limited finances can be a barrier to many young people, and we recognise that a little financial support at the right time can make a big difference when starting out on a career, self-employment or learning path.
