We’re proud to call this city region our home, and proud that our home is a place where people feel welcome, cared for and safe. It’s a place that leads the way to inspire others. It’s a place where we help each other.

Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity

The Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity is an independent charity which was registered with the Charity Commission on 23 October 2018 (charity no. 1180418) and launched in April 2019.

The current focus of the charity is to provide essential funding to front line projects that deliver innovative initiatives to tackle homelessness and support the goal to end rough sleeping in Greater Manchester.

However, the charity has a broader objective which allows the Trustees to support other charitable causes that tackle social issues at the heart of the Greater Manchester community and support the vulnerable members of its community.

The Trustees comprise of a mix of public and private sector representatives with a blend of skills, who represent the community which the charity hopes to serve.

Our trustees

Our trustees share the responsibility for governing the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity and directing how it is managed and run. They take these responsibilities incredibly seriously and ensure that the charity is carrying out its purposes for the benefit of all communities in Greater Manchester.

Who we have helped so far

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.

COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 poses a serious threat to the Greater Manchester community. Most of us have a roof over our head and access to fresh water to wash our hands, but we’re not all that lucky.

Those sleeping rough and homeless in our region need your help. They need to be able to self-isolate, to keep themselves and others in our community safe. We need donations to make this happen. It’s never been more important to show that in Greater Manchester we don’t walk on by.

Whatever you can give will make a huge difference in stopping the spread of this deadly virus.
