Community funding

The way in which we deliver community funding at Bury Council is changing. Applications to Community Funds now take the form of Participatory Budgeting events. This is a democratic process where the public take control being the key voice on which projects will be delivered locally.

ParkLife Community Funding

Funded by the ParkLife Community Fund: Investing in the communities around Heaton Park

ParkLife takes place in Heaton Park each June. As part of their commitment to reducing the impact of the event by working with local residents and community groups, the ParkLife Community Fund has been set up and organisations can apply for up to £1,000 for projects in Prestwich covering St. Mary's, Sedgley and Holyrood wards. Priority will be given to projects focusing on parks and green spaces and/or working with young people.
