Become a partner and help the people of Greater Manchester
Our focus is on the issues the people of Greater Manchester care about, with a particular priority of homelessness.
A message from our patron, the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham - “Welcome to the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity, independently raising money for important causes across our city region. It won’t surprise you to know that, as the current Mayor of Greater Manchester, homelessness and rough sleeping is a top priority for me. So I'm delighted that funds raised through the charity will support this.”
“This is a city region that cares. It’s a region that has a history of mutuality and place where people work together to help the most vulnerable in our society. This charity is focused on two things – Greater Manchester and the issues affecting those most in need across our city region. We are independent, we are transparent and above all we are determined to make a difference. I am incredibly proud to Chair the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity. On behalf of our Patron and Trustees and all the people helped so far, I look forward to welcoming you into our significant family of supporters.”
The Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity is making an open call for applications for unrestricted funding (including core running costs) up to a maximum of £10,000 per organisation to support the Greater Manchester emergency homelessness Covid-response.
Please note that we can only accept ONE application per organisation.
This funding round has now closed and all applicants will be notified w/c 18th May of the Trustees decisions
Supporting the people of Greater Manchester
Since the charity formed in April 2019, together, we have raised more than £2m and 100% of the proceeds have gone directly to help the most vulnerable in our society. A huge number of homelessness charities and organisations across Greater Manchester have received vital funds they need to work towards our aim of ending rough sleeping across our city region.
