Our Investment Committee is made up of different people from the VCSFE sector on Greater Manchester and you will be helping make the decision on who in Greater Manchester gets social investment to help them with their social enterprises in the early stages of trading, growth stages and taking on assets.

Help us better understand young carers of those with substance use issues
Are you a VCFSE organisation working with young carers who are caring for family members with substance use issues, or their families?GMCVO are working with Manchester Metropolitan University to develop a research project that seeks to produce useful insight that can be used to support young people in this situation.

To help the team understand the scale of the issue, they have developed a short survey and are asking anyone working with young carers to take 5 minutes to complete the survey.

The results will be included in a bid for funding to enable the research.
