Forever Manchester award grants to community projects benefitting over 300 Greater Manchester residents

Forever Manchester have been able to award grants to the following community projects over the last couple of months, with the support of their corporate partners, benefitting over 300 Greater Manchester residents.

As one of Forever Manchester’s corporate partners, we’re so proud to see the difference Forever Manchester make to local communities.

Better We CIC, based in Longsight Manchester, aim to help those in need by providing help and advice on health, finance or language. To tackle the cost of living crisis they requested funding for room hire, two computers, and equipment to help provide a free service to include advice and support on ways to manage financial pressures.

Chrysalis Manchester promote the welfare of people in Moss Side, specially providing employment and housing support as well as working with young people. They also run a foodbank and provide both a space to relieve isolation and a lunch club. They requested funding to run 10 lunch sessions, encouraging people to cook the food together.

My Coldhurst is a resident’s association, based in Oldham, supporting its local community with a range of activities which include litter picking sessions, summer holiday activities and, during the pandemic, delivery of food parcels. They also host football sessions to tackle anti-social activity and to give young people a positive outlet. They requested funding to cover pitch fees and coaching costs for 15 sessions.

String of Hearts CIC connects older adults through music-making, to help reduce isolation. They deliver regular music sessions and music phone calls to help users express themselves and explore their creative side. Their latest project is to build community cohesion and improve wellbeing in the wider area for Old Trafford residents. They requested funding for facilitators and artists, to deliver 10 sessions in the community.

West End Tiny Tots are a voluntary toddler group for families and carers based in Ashton under Lyne. They promote a safe and friendly place for children to play and socialise, offering a wide range of toys and equipment, whilst the adults chat over a brew and share parenting advice and support. They requested funding for venue hire to cover 36 sessions.
