Funding opportunity for services supporting women offenders

Grants from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) are available to VCSE organisations that deliver community-based services to women offenders in Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Wigan (1 grant allocation per district).

GMCVO is working with the PCC to help voluntary organisations access this opportunity for funding, which aims to ensure that there is a minimum standard of provision for all women across Greater Manchester. (The other four authority areas already have VCSE providers that deliver to this standard).
