Greater Manchester Poverty Action (GMPA) is now Resolve Poverty To enable us to realise the impact we want to have as set out in our strategy, from today, Greater Manchester Poverty Action will become Resolve Poverty. This new name reflects our belief that localities have a central role to play in a national mission to end poverty.
Since 2016, we have been supporting efforts to reduce and prevent poverty across the city region. As a result of our work and that of partner organisations, all ten Greater Manchester councils have either introduced or committed to introduce anti-poverty strategies, several public bodies have voluntarily adopted the socio-economic duty, and 785 local organisations have become accredited Living Wage employers. More recently, via our programmes work, we’ve helped local families gain access to over £350,000 in benefits through Money Matters and we’ve expanded our Money Advice Referral Tool to seven boroughs.  
What’s exciting is that this collective action in Greater Manchester is generating more and more interest across the country. Local authorities and partners from Lancashire to London have begun seeking our expertise to tackle poverty. As is so often the case, Greater Manchester is leading the way.
We’ve reached a point where we passionately believe our expertise can add huge value to the fight against poverty in localities across the country. Whether it is delivering our Poverty Awareness training or supporting councils and partners to develop anti-poverty strategies, Resolve Poverty wants to work with you in your locality to deliver positive change. Our new website address is resolvepoverty.org and our email addresses will also be changing – but don’t worry if you email our old addresses, as we’ll still receive these.
