23 Jan 2013 - 12:38 by michelle.foster

The community associations Manchester City Council support have historically been established community centres or associations providing a range of services and activities, or enabling others to provide services and activities, for local people. Just over £430,000 is spent on grant funding to support the valuable work these groups carry out in the community and we believe these associations have played a vital role in supporting local residents in response to local needs.

Awards for All England Regional Pilot

20 Dec 2012 - 11:29 by michelle.foster

Projects throughout England now have the opportunity to apply for repeat and on-going activities under Awards for All in a pilot scheme running until the end of March 2013.

Currently Awards for All does not fund on-going, regular or repeat activities, as the programme has focused on ‘new’ project ideas. However, in these challenging times the Big Lottery are increasingly aware of the pressures smaller groups face with rising costs and cuts to funding, and want to respond to this by looking at alternative ways of funding projects that support those most in need.
