Councillor Sue Murphy

8 Apr 2020 - 11:47 by Mike Wild

We are in a time where everyone is expecting to hear bad news at some point. We’re also in a time where more than ever we need to support each other, to work together and unleash all the skill, creativity, kindness and compassion we can muster. So hearing the news of the sudden passing of Councillor Sue Murphy is a shock and a sad and cruel loss for those she loved and for all of us who were working with her to respond to these strange and anxious times.

The Roaring Twenties

3 Jan 2020 - 12:40 by Mike Wild

One of the things I’ve said many times over the years is the need to think about volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity as a way of coping with a rapidly changing world. I’m not going to tell you to stop doing that! With a new Government with such a large majority we now know that after years, things will start moving fast…or at least it will look and feel as if they are. That big majority means acceleration. We’re just still waiting to see what direction it will take. Who knows what version of ‘One Nation Conservatism’ we will actually see?

Blogging in a post-truth age

4 Dec 2019 - 16:05 by karen.dyson

There’s a general principal in Macc that we’ll write blogs. There are several good reasons behind this; they’re a good way of setting out our position as an organisation and sharing our values and culture; they can help us engage with the sector and start conversations; they’re more relaxed and personal than formal briefing papers or articles; and they give us a bit more pondering space than the 280 characters on Twitter.

General election guidance for VCSE organisations

20 Nov 2019 - 10:44 by helen.walker

Macc is already experiencing some of the effects of the pre-election or ‘Purdah’ period, which has seen conferences cancelled, meetings being postponed and consultations deferred.

It is important that voluntary, community and social enterprise sector organisations are able to campaign and argue for policy changes that could benefit the people and communities of Manchester. Please find below a document with guidance on what we can and can’t say and do in the run up to 12 December.
