Communities in Control: Take part in our week of action


Communities in Control: A week to showcase how Greater Manchester is enabling a more inclusive economy

  • Has your organisation or group helped its local community to take control of something that matters to people in their neighbourhood/area? For example, a shop, pub, creative hub, faith building or community garden.
  • Have you supported people to get involved with projects that help keep money and resources in their area? For example, a credit union, local savings group or toolshare/repair cafe.
  • Are you part of a co-operative, whether a worker, consumer or housing co-op?
  • Do you employ and upskill a wide range of people in the community? For example, a digital inclusion project, car sharing scheme or green transition activites.

If the answer is ‘yes’, we want to hear from you!

GMCVO, in partnership with the GM VCSE Leadership Group, want to showcase VCSE sector activity that helps to create an economy that is more inclusive of those that are being increasingly left behind. 

We are inviting a range of organisations across Greater Manchester who carry out the kind of activity listed above to join us in a week of action taking place from Monday 4th to Friday 8th July 2022.
