Trafford Council Inclusive Neighbourhood Grants 2019

Trafford Council want residents to be proud of where they live, and be active in their local community. When people come together they build lasting relationships, celebrate their community and have fun.

The Inclusive Neighbourhoods Grant will support local people to put on an event or deliver a project that brings people together, is organised by residents, improves a local asset such as a park, or showcases community strengths.

The scheme will run throughout 2019, enabling people to apply at any time during the year. Grants will come in two sizes; up to £500 for events and up to £2,000 for projects. Activities that bring different people together, across faith, generations, places or diversity, integrating residents and strengthening cohesion will be prioritised, and all projects must benefit Trafford residents.

Our local communities are strong, diverse and inclusive and we want to help them as best we can. We want residents to continue to be proud of where they live and be active in their local community, and these grants can help them do exactly that.

We are particularly interested in events and projects that support health and wellbeing, make places safer or improve the local environment. We are also looking to support our diverse communities, who come together across geographic areas such as our LGBT, Disability and BME communities.

Councillor Catherine Hynes, Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Equalities and Partnerships.

£20,000 will be released every two months. Closing dates for each period will be: 31 January, 31 March, 31 May, 30 July, 30 September and 30 November.

The grants will be awarded by a cross-party panel of Councillors from across the borough.

For further information contact or telephone 0161 912 1173.
