OPEN PROGRAMMES

Hate Crime Awareness Week Plus 2020 Grants Programme

Hate crime is significantly under-reported. Local groups and organisations need to continue raising awareness, challenging hate crime in our communities and helping instil confidence in victims by highlighting how and where hate crime incidents can be reported.

Through Macc on behalf of Manchester City Council, Manchester Community Safety Partnership makes funding available annually to support events and projects across the city that promote awareness of hate crime and how to report it.

Following feedback from last year’s grants programme, the Partnership now wishes to introduce some flexibility with regard to eligible project durations. Whilst we still want to support a full calendar of events during Hate Crime Awareness Week 2020 itself (between 3 and 9 February), we are also encouraging projects with more varied durations.

We will support eligible activities that are a single event or that may take place over several days, weeks, or weekly for a month, before, during or after Hate Crime Awareness Week 2020.

Deadline: Wednesday 13 November 2019, 12pm

The Spirit of Manchester Active Communities Fund

The Spirit of Manchester Active Communities Fund, financed by the Eric Wright Charitable Trust. It offers individual funding awards of up to £500. The Spirit of Manchester Active Communities Fund aims to reduce or remove the perceived barriers that affect getting involved in volunteering, active citizenship and community activity, and address needs anywhere in Manchester’s neighbourhoods.
