The OneFamily Foundation is making £200,000 available for its customers to nominate local projects close to their heart. The funding is for community groups and projects based in the UK covering the following categories:
- health, disability and social care;
- schools and centres of education;
- sports and social groups;
- youth and affiliated organisations.
All approved projects will be entered into a public vote to determine the winners. Voting runs from 4th July to 20th July, with the winner announced on 27th July 2016.
Nominations close on 29th June 2016.
The Community Awards (link below) have helped communities to fund things like the renovation of school playgrounds and sports clubs, sensory gardens and respite centres for children with disabilities. Previous award recipients in Greater Manchester include the CEDE Foundation, Oakdale School in Dukinfield and Werneth Community Centre.
