Aims/priorities: The Community Support Fund (Phase Two) will accept applications organisations who are supporting those suffering from hardship as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Who can apply? To apply you need to be a charity or community group with your own bank account and relevant safeguarding policies in place. We expect you to be based in the area where you are offering help.
You must be applying for activity which is in line with your organisation’s aims and objects as shown in your governing documents.
The Fund is aimed at organisations supporting those suffering hardship as result of Covid-19 and priority will be given to funding organisations who are reaching the most vulnerable or at greatest risk of negative social, health or economic impacts. As such we would expect to be receiving applications from organisations working in the following types of services:
- Foodbanks and other emergency food/household provisions
- Homelessness support
- Financial and welfare advice
- Domestic violence support
- Mental health and counselling services
Priority will be given to groups with an annual income of less than £200,000.
Grant amount: You can apply for up to £5,000, but as we expect a lot of applications and we will not be able to fund them all, we ask that you only apply for what you know you need.
Application process: The online application form can be found on Forever Manchester's website.
Deadline: No formal deadline specified but there is limited funding remaining in the Community Support Fund and it may close at short notice.
