Europia proudly presents the very 1st "Europia Women's Awards". A celebration of all the amazing achievements of the European females (but not only) of Greater Manchester. An opportunity to highlight the contributions of European communities in the local society.
“The executive and members of the Faith Network for Manchester (FN4M) express our horror at yet another Islamophobic attack. Yet another arson attack has been perpetrated against the Nasfat Mosque, which has gutted the building this time. This is an unacceptable act and we are united with people of all faiths and none in deploring all hate crimes. We stand in solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters, especially with those members and congregants of the Nasfat Manchester Islamic Centre.
I'm delighted to share a blog written by Dr Sohail Munshi, reflecting on the response to the events at the MEN Arena this week. (Click here to read Macc's response)
I’ve never written a blog before so this is a first.
We have pulled together a range of information collected so far about the additional support local charities & community organisations are offering in the aftermath of the events.

So, here we are again.
Among the many questions raised by last year's EU Referendum, is whether charities and voluntary organisations and social enterprises were too quiet in the debate. I'd say this was definitely the case.
You know that game where you have to pick the people, living or dead, you’d most like to have round a dinner table? Being a bit of an ideas geek, I have a similar thing about who I’d like to hear speak at my dream conference. I’m lucky that I occasionally get to hear some brilliant speakers from the world of charities and social enterprises.
Hate Crime Awareness Week 2017 is taking place from Monday 6 - Sunday 12 February with over 40 events taking place across the city.
This annual event, now in its fifth year supports voluntary organisations to hold events to raise awareness of hate crime in Manchester, encourage reporting, promote community cohesion and celebrate diversity.
We have extended the deadline to complete our State of the Sector survey to 18 December 2016.
We would like to encourage your organisation to complete our important survey as we want to know how the government cuts and economic recession have affected our sector. We need to know how many groups have lost funding, how many have had to reduce services and how many have had to close or are facing closure. But also how we continue to work together providing valuable services and support to the people of Manchester.
Manchester is an eclectic and welcoming city and for many years which has been tackling the causes of inequality and demonstrating the benefits of diverse and cohesive communities. Manchester City Council recognises that community cohesion does not happen by itself – it is driven by people making an effort to support one another in their communities and neighbourhoods. They want to build on this by holding events and activities throughout their annual Hate Crime Awareness Week 2017. You can help do this by holding an event or activity in your neighbourhood.
Macc’s purpose is to encourage, support and develop voluntary and community groups and individuals to have a real influence over the places and communities in which they live. So for that reason alone, we’re supporting the People’s Plan as a non-partisan, citizen-led movement bringing new and seldom-heard voices into the conversation about the future of Greater Manchester.
