Who We Are

Tameside 4 Good Team

Tameside 4 Good helps young people and good causes right here in Tameside. It is a charity initiative from Action Together, designed to drive the giving of time, skills, money and resources to voluntary and community groups in Tameside.

100% of the money donated to Tameside 4 Good is distributed via the grant scheme that is committed to issuing grants of up to £500 to disadvantaged individuals in Tameside, aged between 5 - 25, who want to undertake an activity that benefits them and their community, with grants of up to £4,000 available to Tameside community groups.

The exciting, unique initiative creates and reinforces relationships between local communities and businesses through four key ways:

Time

Businesses that give employees time to volunteer enable staff to support activities such as:

  • One-off events — office bake sales, shoe box appeals, sponsored activity
  • A series of events — taking part in a variety of athletic events
  • Employer supported volunteering — offers employees paid time off to benefit their local community. It is a great way of fulfilling a corporate social responsibility policy and building a reputation as responsible business. We will work with you to find an activity that suits your business and challenges your staff.

Skills

Use your talents to help others. This could include a painter and decorator sprucing up a community room, a joiner repairing a fence or a marketer helping a local good cause raise awareness of its positive impact. What skills can you donate?

Money

  • Establish a payroll giving scheme for employees
  • Set up a fundraising appeal page for a sponsored event
  • Make a donation through our “Donate Now” facility
  • Provide a specific capital item
  • Develop a corporate social responsibility programme
  • Match Funding—help charitable groups to seek a wider range of grants through offering to match fund a proposal

Resources

Offer a product or activity to meet the needs of a local community or voluntary group. This could range from food for a pensioners lunch to cement to create a smooth and safe path for disabled access or even a venue for a meeting.
