The Charity Service's continuing aim is to help support a vibrant and sustainable Third Sector by providing assistance and expertise to make the most of gifts and donations, and to help make financial resources available to charities, voluntary and community organisations and individuals.
They currently have four small grant programmes:
Manchester & Salford Medical Charitable Fund
Cinderella Charitable Fund
Pennington Charitable Fund
The Charity Service Discretionary Fund.
Grants can be issued to assist with the purchase or supply of activities, amenities or equipment which will improve general welfare or items of a medical nature which are not supplied by the NHS. The Cinderella Fund can be used by groups or individuals to support the cost of a holiday for sick or convalescent children whose family are unable to afford to take them on holiday.
