GM Poverty Action

GM Poverty Action coordinates networks of organisations and individuals to reduce poverty across Greater Manchester. We provide opportunities, ideas and support to encourage and strengthen collaboration, and we collectively influence policy and practice to address poverty in Greater Manchester.

We do this through the following aims:

  • Raising awareness of poverty, its effects and its causes, and of activities that address poverty
  • Connecting people and projects for anti-poverty collaboration
  • Helping to strengthen the voices of people in poverty
  • Participating in research and projects to better understand and address poverty
  • Directly influencing policy and practice that will help to reduce poverty
