Inclusive neighbourhoods

TFD 624 - neighbourhood grants web banner

We want residents to be proud of where they live, and be active in their local community. When people come together they build lasting relationships, celebrate their community and have fun.

The Inclusive Neighbourhoods Grants will support local people to put on an event or deliver a project that brings people together, is organised by residents, improves a local asset such as a park, or showcases community strengths.

Throughout 2020, £100,000 is available to residents and community groups through the Inclusive Neighbourhood Grant scheme. £25,000 will be released every few months and the closing dates for each period of the grant scheme will be 30th April 2020, 31st July 2020, 31st October 2020 and 31st January 2021.

Grants will come in two sizes; up to £500 for events and up to £2,000 for projects.

 This grant scheme provides a fantastic opportunity for communities to be able to come together.

We were delighted that so many groups were able to take advantage of our grants last year enabling so many events and projects to take place in our borough.

Having thriving communities is a key priority in Trafford so I would urge any neighbourhood group putting on an event or hoping to deliver a project to apply and help increase pride in our wonderful Trafford communities.”

Councillor Graham Whitham, Executive Member for Partnerships and Communities

Important Update

In light of the Covid-19 outbreak, the first round of the Inclusive Neighbourhood Grants will be open to community groups and voluntary organisations who are able to deliver a project which supports Trafford residents through this time period.

£25,000 is available in total in the first round of the Inclusive Neighbourhood Grants. The deadline is 30th April; however, we will be reviewing the applications as they come in to ensure funding can be allocated sooner where appropriate.  

As it is not possible to hold community events at the moment, community groups and voluntary organisations can apply for up to £2,000 for a project.

For further information contact or phone 0161 912 1173.
