Changing Futures


Through Changing Futures in GM, we are working in partnership with a range of VCSE and community partners, and local innovation sites (Rochdale, Oldham, Wigan and Manchester) to ensure lived experience is at the heart of design, delivery and systems change.

We will be funding five GROW Trainee roles, which are supported employment opportunities for people who have lived experience of multiple disadvantage. You can find out more about Shelter’s GROW Traineeship Programme by watching this promotional video, and in ‘The Guide to Fair Recruitment’ attached above.

We will be working in partnership with Shelter to develop a GM GROW Campus which will focus on support, development and influencing wider change around lived experience in the workforce and inclusive and fair recruitment practices.

Can you help us get the word out about two exciting new roles that will be key to moving forward our ambitions, and to building a GM GROW Campus?
