About GM Social Investment


We have been working with social change and ethical trading organisations in Greater Manchester for over 40 years and we understand the unique challenges and the opportunities in the locality. We are delighted to have the opportunity to support organisations through social investment through our two current programmes; Access to Growth and Resonance's Community Developers fund. We look forward to hearing from you if you are looking for a boost which can take your organisation and your social impact to the next level.
