We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Old Trafford last Thursday as part of our November Roadshow.
We visited three locations across Trafford, aiming to meet as many people as possible who make a difference in their community and who we could help with our new Social Investment Fund.
The locations where we met people were the St. Johns Centre, the Globe Centre and Limelight. A big Thank You to these locations for hosting us! We had a great time meeting many new people and hearing about the plans they had to better their communities. With so much going on in Old Trafford, we are very excited to help the groups we met in whatever way we can - from an investment from our fund to our non-financial support from our Capacity Building Team.
We want to give money and support to people already working towards improving the lives of people in Trafford and to those whose work contributes towards our four priorities:
- Boosting household incomes and reducing costs
- Improving education standards and increasing skills
- Creating long term economic growth
- Strengthening families and communities
Individuals are welcome to apply to our service, we are looking to fund a variety of projects addressing the particular gaps and barriers people face in Trafford. The main eligibility criteria are that the work meets at least one of our four priorities and the work benefits Trafford residents.
If you, or you know of anyone whose projects, plans or ideas for the future have potential to contribute to one of our priorities and the reduction of poverty in Trafford then we would love to meet you on our roadshow! We will be in Urmston, Partington, Stretford, Altrincham and Sale over the course of November. See the poster below for further details.
