Voluntary and community organisation grants

Voluntary and Community Grant Scheme

Closing date: Sunday, 10 July 2022

Local groups from the voluntary, not-for-profit and charitable sector can apply for grant funding to support a safer borough.

The Rochdale Safer Communities Partnership is accepting applications to the Voluntary and Community Grant Scheme, now in its fourth year. The scheme provides funding to applicants whose work contributes towards the partnership’s priorities.

The Police and Crime Commissioner has devolved grant funds of £100,000 to each Greater Manchester local authority. This is to deliver activities linked to the Greater Manchester plan for safer, stronger communities – standing together.


Applications need to demonstrate that they will support communities to be;

  • Keeping people safe and supporting victims
  • Reducing harm and offending
  • Strengthening communities and places

Applications to the latest round of funding will be considered by a panel and decisions will be made on the proposed projects against the criteria set.

Applications must be submitted by a registered charity, or a constituted voluntary, community sector or not-for-profit organisation. Applicants may also be invited to deliver a short presentation to a decision-making panel if required.

How to apply

Applications for this grant closed on Sunday. 10 July 2022.
