Every year we survey our network to understand more about how people value and utilise our work. You can read the results from our 2022 Impact Survey by clicking on the button below.
Greater Manchester Poverty Action (GMPA) was incorporated in May 2016. The organisation was established to combat growing levels of poverty across the city region through policy and systems change. Initially GMPA’s work was delivered through a voluntary network. Since 2017, we have grown the organisation’s staff team and developed and delivered several outputs that have enabled us to shape the way Greater Manchester responds to poverty.
Our achievements to date include growing the number of Real Living Wage accredited employers, supporting local authorities in establishing anti-poverty strategies and adopting socio-economic duty. We have built up a network of over 1800 stakeholders committed to addressing poverty and established programmes such as the Money Advice Referral Tools and Money Matters.
Our 2021 Report is also available here and you can find out more about our work between 2017 and 2020 in this Impact Report. It details our achievements up to December 2020 as we work towards our vision of a Greater Manchester free from poverty where all residents can realise their potential and access the benefits of living in a diverse and vibrant city region.
