Inequalities and poverty in GM continue to rise and VCSE energy and resources, already under pressure, are being expended helping people out of preventable crises. Inequality of provision, with a decline in shared spaces, leads to people having fewer opportunities to meet people not like them and create bridges across communities. Structural inequalities in GM are strongly correlated with particular demographic groups, particular places, and particular lived experiences.

GMCVO believes that voluntary action and enterprise is an important factor in increasing the social, economic and democratic inclusion of all Greater Manchester people, and that increased inclusion and reduced inequalities are beneficial to everyone. We consider that action to reduce inequalities needs to be carefully targeted and co-produced with the people we intend to benefit.
