Moss Side Community Fund

*The fund is now closed*

We are extremely proud to have launched the Moss Side Community Fund

After recent tragic events in Moss Side, MSV Housing, One Manchester, Arawak and Jigsaw have come together to offer grant funding to local groups and organisations providing vital services.

This new and exciting partnership will pool our resources and allow us to develop new initiatives in Moss Side to help strengthen the local community and allow groups and organisations to grow and bring their own project ideas to life.
