​Grants available to boost neighbourhood wellbeing

Community groups are being given another chance to win up to £1,500 to improve the health and wellbeing of their neighbourhood.

The funding, from Bury Council, is to support local projects that are community-led and help people to help themselves and others live a good life.

Applications that meet the criteria must attend ‘The Pitch’ presentation events, where those in attendance vote for the projects they wish to see funded.

For more details, and an application form, go to

The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 8 February.

Councillor Tamoor Tariq, cabinet member for communities and safer neighbourhoods, said: “This funding has already helped scores of community groups across the borough to help their neighbourhoods with a huge range of projects, chosen by local people. I urge everyone to get their applications in before the deadline, and to come along to their local Pitch event and vote for their favourite projects.”
