We Love Manchester Stronger Communities Fund

The Lord Mayor of Manchester's charity - We Love MCR is calling on community groups and individuals in Manchester to apply for funding of up to £2000 for initiatives that will bring their communities together to celebrate diversity and help build stronger relationships in and across those communities.

The charity wants to celebrate Manchester's uniqueness, multi-cultural neighbourhoods and youthful energy. Manchester is a diverse city and the charity recognises the importance of building strong relationships in and across these diverse communities.

We are looking to support projects which have one or more of the following themes:

  • Pride– celebrating neighbourhoods and the people that live there
  • Connect– bringing people together to celebrate the diversity in our city
  • Educate– providing the chance for people to learn about where they live and their neighbours, both within and across Manchester's wards

How to apply 

To apply you must be supporting or working with communities within the City of Manchester. Applications from projects based in the wider Greater Manchester area will not be considered. Applications from individuals will be considered but you must have a sponsor organisation, who will endorse your application and act as a guarantor.

Applying for funding is really straight forward. Please visit the charity's website at www.welovemcrcharity.org to download the guidance notes and grant application form and return your completed form via email or in the post if you prefer.

If you have any questions please email welovemcrcharity@manchester.gov.uk
