9th March 2021

Greater Manchester Funders Forum meeting.

We are keen to bring together local and national funders to hear speakers talk about topics important to funders and provide an opportunity to share and learn from each other.

At this event, we will be welcoming Graham Whitham from GM Poverty Action to speak about how funders can help address the underlying causes of food insecurity and poverty. Analysis of poverty in Greater Manchester (GM) reveals that 620,000 people in GM are living in poverty, and food poverty has been at the forefront of discussion throughout the Covid-19 crisis.

Dr Virginia Tandy OBE, part time Director of a new national initiative on age and creativity hosted by Manchester Museum, will be speaking about the value of cultural projects in building confidence and community and the importance of community spaces and the arts following the impact of Covid-19.

Please note, this event is for GM Funders Forum members only. Please contact if you are interested in joining.
