Young Manchester

Vibrant, connected and inclusive opportunities for children and young people in Manchester

Welcome to Young Manchester

Young Manchester is a youth-led partnership of over 120 local non-profit organisations and groups supporting children and young people in Manchester.

We strengthen, connect and champion opportunities for children and young people (aged 0-25), ensuring these reach the most excluded children and young people in our city.

Together, we're creating a Manchester where every child and young person can shape their city and reach their full potential through vibrant, connected and inclusive opportunities.
