Awards for All England

A quick and easy way to get small Lottery grants of between £300 and £10,000






The FM Awards provides the opportunity for your community group or project to get your hands on £1,000 to help your group to continue to benefit the wider community.

The new awards programme is about hearing about all the good stuff that’s happening in your neighbourhood and how you and your group connects with and improves the local community. The application process is designed to be quick and simple.

We’re not asking for statistics and we don’t want to hear how deprived or disadvantaged the beneficiaries are, nor do we want to know specific details of how you are going to spend the money. Great things happen in and around Greater Manchester on a daily basis and we want to shout about it!

£1,000 awards available across the ten boroughs of Greater Manchester.

For more information about how to apply please call 0161 214 0940 and speak to a member of our Awards Team.

These supermarkets have given small grants to Stockport allotments
You can raise £100’s in collection buckets on Saturdays at supermarkets, by packing customer’s bags.  Have a project you are collecting for.  Make clear signs for collection buckets, using a chosen few words. Customers are more likely to give to projects for children and people with a disability. Bag packing with children usually means that customers give more money, and children really enjoy doing it too!
