ThriveWorking together in Trafford

South Trafford Voluntary Sector Grants – Now Open! Apply for up to £2,000!

The South Trafford Locality Partnership has £20,000 of funding to give to projects which improve the health and wellbeing of the South Trafford community.

This is a fantastic opportunity to apply for funding for your ideas, activities or projects, whether you’re a constituted group or a group of neighbours. The overall aim of this years funding is to improve the health and wellbeing of South Trafford residents.

This year for the first time in South Trafford the grants are available in two separate pots.

£500 Micro Grants
This year £5,000 of the overall budget has been set aside for a £500 micro grant scheme. This can be smaller one off projects, or used as a start-up for new groups or initiatives that improve the health and wellbeing of residents in South Trafford. A constitution is not required for the funding and the grants will be awarded by the South Trafford Locality Partnership at the end of May.

£2,000 Large Grants
Larger grants are available for up to £2,000, again for projects that improve the health and wellbeing of South Trafford residents. Groups must be constituted and have their own bank account in place. The winners will be selected at a public voting event on Sunday 4th June as detailed below.

Closing date for submitting applications for both grants is 9am on Monday 15th May 2017.
