Manchester City Council’s Third Sector team is looking at new ways of allocating equalities funding. By combining the Race, Disability, LGBT and Gender pots of funding the Council can achieve its equality targets more effectively.
The public consultation that runs from the end of August until the end of October will give organisations and the general public an opportunity to express their views on the review.
Successful applicants will be the ones who show that they provide services to one or more of the protected characteristics, as defined by Equality Act 2010. The Council’s priority issues are tackling worklessness, raising aspirations and promoting economic growth.
