Equity Foundation invests over £175,000 in 91 local community projects


Published by Cheryl Stevens for Equity Housing Group in Housing and also in Communities

Equity Housing Group’s charitable grant-maker organisation Equity Foundation has been a hive of activity recently, announcing a further 14 successful projects that will receive funding this quarter to support and develop community activities.

Investing over £175,000 in the South Manchester and Stockport area since 2013, the Foundation is dedicated to facilitating community investment, development and engagement by championing local grassroots organisations. Beneficiaries include Walthew House, Healthy Me Healthy Communities, Mellor House, Stockport Without Abuse and Penny Lane Pantry.

Richard Browning of Healthy Me Healthy Communities said,

 “Funding from Equity Foundation is helping us to deliver community programmes enabling local people to improve their health and wellbeing. Adults and families have enjoyed healthy eating workshops, a food-safety certificate course and family activities thanks to this grant.”

Committed to seeing real improvement in the community, Equity Foundation supplies three grant streams of up to £2,500 to successful applicants with projects that inspire healthy wellbeing, social and financial inclusion and improving skills.

Foundation Co-ordinator, Andrew Cooke said,

“Applications are now open for the next round of funding, the deadline on 21st October at 5pm. Over 43,000 people across Stockport, Trafford & South Manchester have already benefitted from the work of the Foundation, and Equity hopes to continue not only investing in, but inspiring and improving the lives of thousands more people. From job clubs to sports clubs; from radio stations to community café’s - any group looking to make a positive impact on their community is eligible to apply for funding.”
