Community Assistance Programme launches funding to support charities and not-for-profit organisations in Mossley

A Funeral Directors has launched a funding initiative to support local projects and build long-lasting relationships.

The Elizabeth Way & Company Community Assistance Programme is open for applications and ready to award small grants of up to £300 to eligible organisations in their local community. 

Elizabeth Way & Company Funeral Directors aim to support projects taking place within three miles of their funeral home in Stamford Street, Mossley.

The team want to support causes led by people who have a clear understanding of community issues and that address the needs of the most disadvantaged people in the local area. 

Funeral Director Pauline Lawrence said: “I’m proud to work for a business at the heart of the community in Mossley.

“These are difficult times for everyone, with people having to very carefully consider how they spend their money, which will have a knock-on effect on the donations these grassroots organisations rely on to help those in need.

“We know there are some brilliant projects in Mossley who could benefit from some financial and voluntary assistance, but also there will be others we don’t know about who will be doing equally fantastic work, so it would be great to hear from those too.

“We are keen to use this programme as a first step in building long-term relationships with the organisations who contact us, so we can continue to support such great causes and initiatives in the community through other activity. 

“If you are involved with a scheme that could benefit, then please do get in touch.”

The fund will be distributed in three cycles, with the first opening today – Monday, March 4. The deadline for this round of applications is April 1 at noon. The other two cycles will open in June 2024 and September 2024.
