Strong Foundations Community Grant Awardees Announced

Following the launch of our Strong Foundations Grant with Semble earlier this year, we are pleased to announce our awardees.

Pre COVID we started on a journey of local giving in the Manchester area with social enterprise Semble and are delighted to introduce our awardees.

Back in February, following the launch of our Strong Foundations Grant, we saw nearly 100 community groups in Manchester and Salford apply for our community grant. With so many high-quality applications, competition was tough.

A panel of judges including Sir Robert McAlpine’s Contract Manager Paul Quinn and Director of People & Infrastructure, Karen Brookes scored the nominations against a set of criteria including whether the project increases community cohesion as well as boosting wellbeing.

We’re delighted to announce our awardees and wish them every success with their projects. 

We’d also like to thank all those that made an application and we look forward to seeing the progress of our Strong Foundations Grant projects.

Over the coming weeks, we will be sharing more information over on our Instagram and Twitter pages so please make sure you’re following us!
