20 May 2019 - 14:39 by michelle.foster

The purpose of the Playscheme Fund is to complement the all year round play offer in Manchester. The funding aims to enable open access play activities, primarily over the Summer 2019 and Easter 2020 holidays, with a particular focus on; addressing gaps in provision, increasing the numbers of disabled children accessing universal play services, ensuring access to healthy food and increasing children’s opportunities to play outdoors. It is envisaged that this will be done through the delivery of play activities by the Voluntary and Community Sector in Manchester.

NEW REPORT Decent work: Harnessing the power of local government

17 May 2019 - 12:14 by helen.walker

A new IPPR North report looks at how local authorities can help to create a culture where people are paid a Living Wage North that can provide a decent income for all. 

The North is enduring a severe job quality crisis. Record high employment figures conceal major deficiencies in the quality of work people are doing. And while every region of the country has seen an unprecedented squeeze on wages, real weekly pay has fallen by £21 since 2008 in the North – more than the national average. Poor job quality and low pay has a profound effect on people in terms of in-work
