Could your organisation become a Principal Partner of GMPA?
We are delighted to confirm that 17 organisations have already signed up as Principal Partners of GMPA in 2020. The scheme is the main way we cover our core costs. We couldn’t do what we do without the support of organisations who share our vision of a Greater Manchester free from poverty.
Principal Partners support GMPA with pledges of funding and support. This year we’d really like to increase the number of principal partners to help secure GMPA’s future. If your organisation would be interested in becoming a Principal Partner, joining with the group represented below, please contact our director Graham Whitham.
These are some of the reasons why organisations support GMPA in this way:
“Tackling poverty and inequality, wherever we find it, is the central mission of Oxfam, including in the UK, so we are very pleased to support the work of GMPA as a lead and convener, working in partnership to challenge policy and practice and make Greater Manchester a fairer place for all, placing the views and experiences of people in poverty at it’s heart”
Anela Anwar, Head of Programme Development – UK Programme – Oxfam GB
“Addressing global inequalities is a key priority for researchers at The University of Manchester. Being a Principal Partner of Greater Manchester Poverty Action helps to build on our many collaborations to-date, ensuring our research impacts on policies and practices to reduce poverty and achieve more inclusive growth across our city region.”
Dr Julian Skyrme, Director of Social Responsibility, the University of Manchester
“Our One Manchester vision commits us to using our skills and resources to build “Resilient Thriving Communities”. To achieve this it is essential that we work in partnership to address the effects of poverty, and it’s root causes. We provide money and debt advice in our communities, and support a range of projects that create opportunities to develop peoples potential. One Manchester supports Greater Manchester Poverty Action because we believe that it is only through working together and collective action that we can realise our ambitions.“
Dave Power, Group Chief Executive, One Manchester
