Funding for ‘Ananna – Manchester Bangladeshi Women's Organisation’Application for funding so project could continue their good work.
Benefit of funding local projects
Identifying funding empowers communities to deliver the solutions they have designed. Research has shown that staff who can offer mediation, guidance and support in the funding application and project process are as important to community groups as receiving the funding itself. Staff who have a good knowledge of the area and who needs support, enable funding to be accessed by more marginalised people and groups. Funding sometimes needs to come from multiple sources and Neighbourhood Health Workers save time being able to quickly identify multiple potential sources.

Buzz, Ananna and Forever Manchester.
We realized that the mutual aid project needed more funding to continue the great work it was set up for. We applied for the ‘Forever Manchester’ Community Fund of £5000 which was successful; these funds are shared between Ananna (MBWO) and the ALCMAG.
"I am really so proud to be part of this team"
The application for £5000 funding from Forever Manchester was successful. Forever Manchester were very supportive of this funding bid because of the partnership between Ananna and the ALCMAG. Partnership and communication are so important in communities; we must remember that.
