The idea behind the Bardsley Fund is to provide a positive, friendly and accessible approach to gaining much needed financial support for your group. Bardsley will enjoy seeing applications from family, generational and sports focused groups and projects. The Bardsley Fund aims to encourage and support grassroots community activity. This means small, community-based and locally controlled groups that manage themselves, encourage people to get involved as volunteers and who just need a bit of financial help to be able to work with their community in the way they’d like.
The Oglesby Charitable Trust is launching a new £275,000 fund focused on supporting people who are refugees or seeking asylum in the North West of England.

This bulletin is produced by a partnership of local support and development agencies across Greater Manchester.
