tackling health inequalities in North Manchester
Local charities receive thousands of pounds funding

Two charity groups in Greater Manchester have received £46,887 funding.
 
Using money raised by HealthSustain Community Interest Company (CIC), through The Health Lottery, grants have been awarded by People’s Health Trust through Active Communities, a funding programme which invests in local people and groups.
 
The two charities that received the funding include:

The Mosses Community Association received £25,000 to deliver bi-weekly activities in Bury East, providing a place for young people to socialise, play sports and console games in a bid to improve community cohesion and lower the risk of youngsters offending.

Redeeming our Communities received £21,887 to provide a drop-in café in Radcliffe. Local residents will be able to meet-up and eat quality food - helping reduce social isolation and improve community cohesion.

Chris Lunn, director of HealthSustain CIC, said: “The projects are extremely valuable to a wide range of individuals across this region; we look forward to hearing more about how these initiatives support people to live longer healthier lives.”
 
HealthSustain CIC has raised £795,669, through The Health Lottery, for health-related good causes in Northern Manchester.
 
John Hume, chief executive of People’s Health Trust, said: “We are delighted to be investing in these local organisations with great ideas to make their communities even better places to grow, live, work and age.”
 
Active Communities is for community groups and not-for-profit organisations with an income of less than £350,000 a year that are seeking investment of between £5,000 and £50,000 a year, for projects lasting up to two years.
