Place-based collaborations provide targeted support for specific geographic areas at all levels: from street and neighbourhood to county and region. Collaborations based on place reflect the complex needs of communities and aim to provide holistic support. Several place-based funder networks are developing responses to Covid-19, and we will add details of these on this page. Place-based collaborations featured so far are London, Yorkshire, Wales and Greater Manchester


Greater Manchester Funders' Forum

The Greater Manchester Funders' Forum exists to enable independent grant makers, social investors and public sector funders to collaborate and coordinate programmes.

It was established during the COVID-19 crisis as both national and local funders in Greater Manchester urgently came together to share intelligence, perspective and understanding.

The Forum additionally encourages and supports the collaboration and alignment of work to prevent duplications and ensure support is available where it is needed.
