Young Manchester is a youth-led partnership of over 120 local non-profit organisations and groups supporting 15,000 children and young people in Manchester every week.

Manchester is the third fastest growing economy in the UK, yet 45% of children in Manchester are currently living in poverty.

We work together with our partners to 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.

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

How do we do this?
