Action Oldham Fund

Changes local lives by supporting smaller voluntary and community groups across the borough. Grants are giving to smaller volunteer-led organisations like our older people’s luncheon clubs, mental health self-help groups, disability sports groups and disadvantaged younger people. These small groups enhance health and wellbeing, rebuild lives affected by poverty, crime, isolation or unemployment.

Other Charities
