of our fundamental motivations.
We are proud to be part of The
NOMA Fund and delighted to be able to support community groups with their work
with local people and in the local area.
NOMA and Forever Manchester
recognise that great things happen in and around Greater Manchester on a daily
basis and we want to shout about it! The idea behind the NOMA Fund is to
provide a positive, friendly and accessible approach to gaining much needed
financial support for your group.
The NOMA Fund welcomes
applications from grassroots community groups working with children and young
people within a five mile radius of the NOMA headquarters (to see the map please click here).
Who can apply?

encourage and support grassroot community activity. This means small,

people to get involved as volunteers and who just need a bit of financial help
to be able to work with their community in the way they’d like.
Applicants should be working
with young people between 11 and 25 years old. Activity needs to be taking
place and supporting those who live within the boundary of the M60. Please click here for the map of the qualifying area.
Annual income of groups
applying to the Fund should be less than £100,000.
How much can you apply for?
The maximum award request that will be considered is £1,000.
