GM Walking Grants

Between November 2019 and October 2020 GMCVO will be giving out a total of £225,000 in grants to VCSE organisations to get Greater Manchester Walking. 

The grants are funded by Greater Manchester Moving who have received funding from Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership to support as many people as possible to walk regularly. They want to create a network of people and organisations who promote and support walking in creative ways.

Small grants from £50 to £1,000, and medium grants of £1,000 to £5,000 are available for voluntary and community groups and social enterprises to encourage people who are usually less active to get out and start walking , or increase the amount they walk. We are also offering partnership grants of up to £15,000. Groups can apply for more than one grant.

The small grants programme was re-launched, taking into account social distancing guidelines but has now closed. Closing date for the medium grants has now passed, but it is envisaged there will be a second, targeted round of medium grants later this year. Closing date for expressions of interest for the partnership grants has also passed with final decisions expected by mid-July.

If you want to apply for a grant, first of all you will need to register with us. Then you will need to fill in a short online application form telling us about your organisation, what you would like to do, what you would spend the funding on and who will benefit from your project.
