As part of its continued commitment to reducing and ultimately preventing Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Manchester City Council is aiming to provide investment in 2019/20 through the Directorate for Children and Families to Voluntary, Community Sector, not for profit and faith sector organisations to further address this issue.
Applications for funding can be from a consortium or individual organisations, but they must be based in Manchester and working with Manchester people. The funding can only be offered to one consortium/ individual organisation and cannot be split between bidders. Applications from groups working together in a partnership will require one organisation acting as the lead, accountable organisation.
Manchester City Council has £10,000 to address FGM in the city of Manchester. The full funding of £10,000 will be awarded to one successful applicant or consortium to provide the delivery of a project that strengthens the voice of the community speaking out against FGM, to improve direct knowledge of FGM and build resilience within the community. The successful applicant will be expected to deliver the programme between August 2019 and March 2020.
Applications are welcomed from groups working in partnership who have a specific remit or interest around FGM. Manchester City Council are seeking applications for funding from Voluntary, Faith, Not for Profit and Community Sector services / organisations that are specifically pro-active in working with communities with direct experience of FGM.
Applications should be emailed to: [email protected]
