Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity

The Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity is an independent charity which was registered with the Charity Commission on 23 October 2018 (charity no. 180418) and launched in April 2019.

The initial work of the Charity will focus on assisting front line projects to deliver innovative initiatives to tackle homelessness and support the goal to end rough sleeping in Greater Manchester.

However, the Charity has broad objectives which allow the Trustees to support other charitable causes as they see fit, such as tackling social issues and supporting vulnerable members of our community.

The Trustees comprise of a mix of public and private sector representatives with a blend of skills, who represent the community which the Charity hopes to serve.

Who we have helped so far

The Mayor’s Homelessness Fund, which opened in May 2017, supported a number of projects working with homeless people. The Fund was closed in May 2019 and any unallocated money transferred to the Mayor’s Charity where it will continue to support homelessness projects. Some of the people helped by the Fund talk about what the support meant to them.
