Support for local community groups and small businesses is available through a wide range of sources at One Manchester. Below, you can see a few of the options available.
The One Manchester Community Fund (Community Soups) was launched in 2015 and allows local community groups and businesses to pitch for up to £5,000 in funding to support their projects and voting takes place within the community. So far, we have invested over £325,000 in over 150 projects, benefiting thousands of local people.
The Catalyst Fund is slightly different in that it is there to help local start ups and small businesses only. Launched in 2017, 10 businesses have so far received up to £5,000 each in funding to help launch or move their businesses to the next level.
Take a look at the more detailed information below.
