All Faith

Statement from the Greater Manchester Interfaith Network, 23 May 2017

24 May 2017 - 09:30 by michelle.foster

Dear All,

Our thoughts today, following the horrendous incident at the Manchester Arena last night, are with those who were caught up in the attack, especially those killed and injured and their families. Such acts of indiscriminate terror have no part in our society and we stand together with all who long for a world in which violence and terror does not have the last word.

As faith and interfaith groups in Manchester, we reaffirm our commitment to working together to increase understanding and respect between all people.

The Faith Network for Manchester (FN4M) are arranging an act as a mark of respect and to send a message of solidarity amongst all our communities to coincide with the London event tomorrow. The London Met are holding a minute silence by getting people to link arms along Westminster Bridge at 2.40pm this Wednesday 29 March.

FN4M are requesting your assistance in being able to organise this locally, i.e. 2.40pm this Wednesday. FN4M are also hoping for everyone to call the venue 'Westminster Bridge' for that minute of silence and use the #westandtogether.

Complete our important State of the Sector Survey

24 Nov 2016 - 12:08 by michelle.foster

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.

The People's Plan for Greater Manchester

26 Oct 2016 - 11:41 by Mike Wild

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.

Help us showcase the work of Manchester’s voluntary, community and social enterprise sector

12 Sep 2016 - 15:35 by michelle.foster

Our State of the Sector Survey in 2013 found that there were 3,093 voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations in Manchester, with an estimated income of £477 million. The sector employed the equivalent of 12,400 full time staff and 94,300 volunteers gave 370,000 hours, with an estimated value of £332 million. Decision makers took note of the survey results, we know it increased their understanding of the sector. Some of the key facts (3093 organisations, 94,300 volunteers) are now widely quoted by colleagues in the Council, the NHS and other bodies such as Big Lottery Fund.
