GMChamber Communities Foundation

Coming Soon - Our New Charity: GM Chamber Communities Foundation

Our Vision

Our vision is one of happy and safe communities where no one is isolated, left out, or unable to fulfil their potential. We want communities where people are treated the same and feel able to contribute to help make their community a better place to live.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help communities develop access to education, skills and social enterprise. We work to provide quality facilities and services to empower communities to work together to end isolation, increase skills and encourage social enterprise. We work with communities to create a future that is safe, fair and free from poverty.

Our Values

Every community has the right to be able to access quality education, skills and social enterprise. Everyone has the right to lead a quality life, which is sustainable and secure. Greater Manchester local authorities, voluntary and other organisations, including us, should all be accountable for the impact of their actions. We believe that with the right partnership working and strategic vision this is possible.

Our Activities

In Greater Manchester, we use a combination of development programmes, campaigns and partnership working to create opportunities for the communities we serve. Through our social enterprise centre, Commerce House, we will provide access to quality facilities where charities and social enterprises can come together to deliver services which give benefit to their immediate communities.

We create opportunities to help young people in schools and colleges develop education and skills. Likewise, through our social value awards, we reward local businesses who give time and resources to activities which have a positive impact on their local communities. We work with stakeholders and partners locally and regionally to achieve this.
