ThriveWorking together in Trafford

Small grants available for Gorse Hill and Stretford

The LARCO (Locality Approach to Reducing Childhood Obesity) Small Grant Applications are now open for Gorse Hill and Stretford. The LARCO Project aims to help reduce childhood obesity in Trafford in the Gorse Hill and Stretford area. A major part of LARCO is making a budget available in each of the neighbourhoods identified to involve the local community in providing positive ways to tackle obesity in local primary school children. These local projects should focus on encouraging physical activity and/or healthy eating. The first phase of the application process will be open to groups to apply for funding for projects that will benefit and engage with children and their families in the Stretford/Gorse Hill area. Further funding opportunities for Old Trafford, and Sale Moor/East Sale are expected to be available over the next twelve months. The closing date is the 5th July 2013 and the information and application form are on the Trafford Partnership Website via the following link:
