The GM Walking and Wheeling Fund (GMWWF) Grants programme offers grants of up to £5,000 to voluntary, community, and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations to deliver projects to get more people walking and wheeling .
The fund, supported by the Greater Manchester Intergrated Care Partnership, aims to improve the health and wellbeing of communities in Greater Manchester by encouraging people who are less active or inactive to walk or wheel (e.g. using a wheelchair/mobility aid or pushing a pram) regularly.
It also increases awareness of and engagement with us, GM Walking, and our hub of information and resources that recognises the important role walking and wheeling can play in increasing physical activity levels.
Who are the GM Walking and Wheeling Fund grants for?
Guided by the Active Lives data, the grants are given to organisations working with communities that may be less active or inactive, including people with disabilities or long-term health conditions, people from diverse ethnic backgrounds, and people from lower socio-economic groups.
The GM Walking and Wheeling Fund is also particularly interested in applications from organisations and projects that link in with the health and care system.
When does the GM Walking and Wheeling Fund grants open for applications?
The GM Walking and Wheeling Fund is open for applications from Thursday 28 September until Monday 6 November for medium grants and Friday 1 December for small grants.
