What do we do?

We provide projects, services and support to enable citizen-led VCSE organisations to play a full and equal part in the development and governance of the Greater Manchester city region.

We support and connect individuals who act as VCSE representatives at GM boards and forums and enable people with shared interests to come together and have their voices heard.

We act as lead and accountable body for partnerships and funding streams.

Our practical services include news, events, policy and research. Our subsidiary companies provide a conference centre and social investment.
