Aims/priorities: Grants are available to encourage more people in Greater Manchester to walk more during social distancing restrictions. They are particularly looking for applications that encourage people who are usually less active or inactive to start or increase the amount they walk whilst following social distancing guidelines. The grants are funded by Greater Manchester Moving who have received funding from Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership to support as many people as possible to walk regularly. Although plans for traditional walking groups are eligible they would like groups to think creatively about how they can encourage people to get out and about. The grants can be used for a variety of purposes which may include; equipment, travel expenses, training, additional staff-time and facilitators.
