Oldham Council has committed to investing £180k over three years in partnership with Action Together.
Voluntary, community, faith, and social enterprise (VCFSE) groups are being encouraged to apply for new micro-grants which could be utilised in their communities. Potential applicants should consider how the grants, which are being administered by Action Together and range between £100 and £1000, can improve outcomes for families with children and young people.
Amanda Chadderton, Oldham Council Leader said: “I’m thrilled that we can get this funding out into Oldham communities to support children and young people. We have a commitment to the next generation to make sure they get the best possible start in life and this funding is part of our promise to help make that happen.
“I’d encourage any groups thinking they might be able to utilise the grants to help young people in their community to come forward with an application.”

The micro-grants are aiming to be given out on a rolling programme and are part of the One Oldham Fund. This fund manages further grants that organisations can apply for as part of Oldham’s Covid Recovery Strategy priorities. For more information on the fund visit the Action Together website.
