Funded by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership a total of £175,000 will be given out between May and December 2020.
The grants will be awarded, in stages, to small, grass roots voluntary and community groups and social enterprises that will support people to develop high levels of mental wellbeing.
Grants of £100-£500 will be awarded on an ongoing basis between September and December 2020. They will be awarded for activities that support mental wellbeing while working within the current government social distancing restrictions. Decisions will be made within 3 weeks.
