If you're a member of a community group or have a project that needs funding, apply to pitch at one of our upcoming Community Soups!

Applications are once again open for the latest round of our Community Soups, and we want to hear from you if your project can make a difference in our neighbourhoods.

This could be by making the most of local resources or public spaces, addressing environmental issues or helping improve people’s wellbeing. We want everyone in our communities to have the opportunity to access positive activities that promote health and wellbeing, bring the community together and help reduce loneliness and isolation.

Applications are assessed internally for shortlisting and are judged on how well the project aligns with One Manchester's vision, whether the project is sustainable and how well the project demonstrates social innovation.

Applications are open until 10 November, so don't miss out!

The specific dates and venues for the pitching events will be confirmed nearer the time, but they will be:

Week starting 25 November

South Manchester - (Fallowfield, Rusholme, Moss side, Longsight and Levenshulme)
Central Manchester - (Ardwick, Hulme, Gorton)

Week starting 2 December

East Manchester - (Openshaw, Clayton and Beswick)

Successful applicants for these upcoming Soups will be contacted by 15 November. To apply, please send in your application through our application form.
