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

The One Manchester Community Fund (Community Soups) allows local community groups and businesses to pitch for up to £4,000 in funding to support their projects and voting takes place within the community. The final decision is made by the community, who vote for the idea they want to fund.

Hulme – One Manchester are particularly interested in projects that can help to connect people with one another, improve the local environment, link to employment and financial support, or engage young people

Openshaw – One Manchester are particularly interested in helping to develop projects with underrepresented communities, those offering employment support or benefiting the local environment

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. Three ideas will be shortlisted. You will need to record your pitch by video should your project get shortlisted. Voting will take place online for anybody in the community to choose their favourite, with the most successful projects will be given funding.
