Community Safety Grants Programme 2019-2020


Community Safety logos

We invite voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations, including faith groups, to apply for one of ten community safety grants of £5,000.

Manchester’s Community Safety Partnership aims to make the city a safer place in which to live, visit and work. The grants support the delivery of this aim and those of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) strategy Standing Together: Our plan for police, community safety, criminal justice services and citizens in Greater Manchester.

Following last year’s pilot scheme, GMCA has provided another £50,000 for the grants programme, which Manchester City Council will oversee on behalf of Manchester Community Safety Partnership. The City Council has commissioned Macc to administer the grants process.

  • The deadline for funding bids is midday on Wednesday 14 August 2019
  • Macc will notify all applicants of the outcome of their bids by Friday 6 September
  • Upon completion of standard due diligence checks, successful applicants will receive their grant in one payment and must then deliver their activity by 31 March 2020 (i.e. within a 6-7 month period)
