Miles Platting – You Decide 2013
Adactus Housing Association has once again set aside a pot of money and would like to put residents of Miles Platting in control of how it is spent. ‘Miles Platting – You Decide’ lets residents of Miles Platting decide for themselves which projects are needed in their area.
Any local community, voluntary or non-profit organisation – even informal groups or friends and neighbours – can apply for up to £3,000 to put ideas into action. All groups applying have to be operating in Miles Platting and any activities will have to happen here or mostly benefit Miles Platting people.
Ideas for projects should:
• Benefit as many people as possible from across the community
• Help to make Miles Platting a better place for everyone.
• Meet a real need that is not already met in the area.
Previous winners have obtained funding to organise a dance for young people, a healthy living project, a crime prevention idea, a lunch club for older residents, a community art project, hanging baskets to improve the look of a street of community garden or a street party for your neighbours.
To apply for the funding groups must return the application form here>> before Friday 28th June 2013. Application forms are also available by calling 0800 234 6826 and asking for Isobel Richards or Vicki Greer or by visiting our local office at 542 Oldham Road, Miles Platting, Manchester, M40 8BS.
