#BeeWell Youth Steering Group: Funding opportunity

The #BeeWell Youth Steering Group have been granted a small pot of money to support activity in responses to the #BeeWell survey findings.

We would like to support responses to these findings by commissioning two pieces of work in the Greater Manchester youth and play sector.

  1. A project/programme of activities which encourages movement through fun and team activities.
  2. A neighbourhood scheme to support community belonging, connection and improve the local area.

We have £6000 to commit to these activities (around £3,000 for each).

We are inviting groups and organisations to apply for this funding with a short proposal of how you would spend the money and how it would directly relate to the #BeeWell findings outlined above. Organisations do not need to apply to cover both briefs, but can apply for £3,000 for one of the projects.

See application info below for 7 key things to cover in a video, 2 page application or over a phone call if this is easier for you!

The proposal needs to demonstrate that this would be a new project or activity OR that it would enhance or extend an existing piece of work that otherwise wouldn’t have happened.
