Young Manchester – Positive Engagement Programme

Young Manchester are pleased to announce a new fund for the city – the Positive Engagement Programme.

To ensure that the city’s children and young people are able to grow up safe, happy, healthy and successful, they need to feel that they are part of safe places and communities. Young Manchester have teamed up with One Manchester and Manchester Community Safety Partnership to launch a programme for the city aimed at a positive and sustained approach to improving opportunities for young people and reducing anti-social behaviour (ASB) – based on the values, principles and practices of good youth work.

Young Manchester are looking for organisations who can mobilise local partnerships, experts in detached youth work, with a focus on linking and encouraging young people in to quality provision and other positive opportunities. Young Manchester wants bold and creative ideas, a track record in delivery and a willingness to work with them to create a sustained positive difference to both young people’s lives and the communities in which they live.

The programme is split in to two lots of funding, with different focus wards for each.

The focus wards for Lot 1 are:
Clayton and Openshaw
Gorton and Abbey Hey

The focus wards for Lot 2 are:
Miles Platting and Newton Heath
Woodhouse Park

Overall funding available is £250,000. Funding is available for the delivery of location specific, detached youth work with young people aged 8 – 19 years.

Applicants should read the prospectus and guidance in full before applying.
