“The Greater Manchester LGBTQ+ Community Fund will help grassroots organisations provide vital support to our community and contribute to a better, safer and kinder world for all LGBTQ+ people.

“There is a strong network of LGBTQ+ community groups across Greater Manchester.

They’re a powerful force for good, making a difference to countless lives every day. We’re so proud to be able to do our bit to help out and can’t wait to see the amazing bids come flooding in.”
