Hobin’s Community Fund – Call for Ideas for North Manchester

Do you have an idea that will bring long term benefits to North Manchester?

Hobin’s Community Fund provides grant funding to groups and organisations to help them make a sustainable positive impact across north Manchester.

You don’t have to be a constituted group, charity or company to apply – as long as the work you’re planning is of lasting value to the people of north Manchester, Northwards Housing want to work with you to make it happen.

Ideas for applications include:

  • health and wellbeing / social isolation
  • green spaces / environmental improvements
  • supporting young people

How Hobin’s Community Fund works

Hobin’s Community Fund provides grants to support long-term community based projects in Northwards Housing’s three neighbourhood areas:

  • Cheetham (including Cheetham, Blackley and Crumpsall)
  • Monsall (including Moston, Harpurhey, Collyhurst and Newton Heath)
  • White Moss (including Higher Blackley, Charlestown and New Moston)


Hobin’s Community Fund

Hobin’s Community Fund is about empowering communities to identify and develop the projects they believe will most benefit them.

So if you are shortlisted you will be invited to a Hobin’s Community Fund event to pitch your idea to people living and working in your neighbourhood area who will vote for the project they’d like to be funded.

Even if your project doesn’t get shortlisted, Northwards Housing are keen to work with everyone doing great things in our neighbourhoods.
