Big Change MCR

Big Change MCR

Manchester Homelessness Partnership established Big Change MCR in 2016 in recognition that people who are homeless and have rough slept in the City of Manchester often need financial support to overcome the practical barriers to them becoming active, independent members of their community and avoid sleeping rough.

Fundraised donations to Big Change MCR provide homeless people who have rough slept in the city with resources to acquire the practical items they need to build new lives off the streets and which support long-term change.

For example, these resources include: deposits for homes, employment-related training courses, clothes for job interviews, furnishings for new accommodation, household items, travel costs, etc.

The many voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations that are registered members of Manchester Homelessness Partnership can bid into the fund on behalf of people who are homeless and have slept rough in the city that are the organisations’ clients.

Migrant Destitution Fund

Migrant Destitution Fund

The Migrant Destitution Fund supports migrant people who have 'no recourse to public funds' - a policy which leaves people unable to meet their basic needs, not supported by the state and not allowed to do paid work to support themselves. People supported by the Fund are mostly asylum seekers and people whose right to remain isn't recognised by the Home Office (e.g. because a relationship breaks down). Many eventually win the right to remain...but it is a long process. It traps people in destitution.

Local charities identify someone who needs support and make an application to the Fund. Grants are for up to £80 once a month and are typically spent on food, winter clothing, phone credit, travel costs (e.g. to appointments), dental treatment.

Hate Crime Awareness Week 2021 Grants Programme

Ten grants of £1,000 are available to fund Hate Crime Awareness projects in the city of Manchester that take place during Hate Crime Awareness Week between 1-7 February 2021.

Hate crime is significantly under-reported. Even in difficult times, continued efforts by local groups and organisations are needed to raise awareness of and challenge hate crime in our communities and to help instil confidence in victims by highlighting how and where hate crime incidents can be reported.

In previous grants rounds, a majority of funded projects have been public events. However, Covid-19 has had a huge impact in every community in Manchester and across all areas of our lives, making the delivery of effective Hate Crime Awareness activities more complex.

Project proposals submitted to this programme must fit with the government’s coronavirus social-distancing measures and include careful consideration of the safety both of those delivering the activity and its intended audience.

We will support eligible activities that are a one-off or that may take place over several days during Hate Crime Awareness Week 2021 which is between 1 and 7 February.
