Greater Manchester Chamber Communities Foundation


Charity Objectives:

  • The prevention of poverty in Greater Manchester by providing services to individuals and communities in need or charities or other organisations working to prevent poverty in Greater Manchester.

  • To provide facilities to the residents of Greater Manchester in the interests of social welfare for recreation and leisure time occupation with the objective of improving the conditions of life for the residents of Greater Manchester.

Our Vision:

Our vision is one of happy and safe communities where no one is isolated, left out, vulnerable or unable to fulfil their potential due to their adverse social or economic conditions. 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 individuals and communities in poverty or at risk of being in poverty get access to services, which, help them create a future that is safe, fair and free from poverty. We will also provide facilities to individuals, which provide community-based recreation and leisure actives, helping to improve the conditions of life for our residents. Our social mission is to collaborate with charities and other organisations to collectively assist in the delivery of services to help prevent poverty in Greater Manchester.

Our Values:

We take personal responsibility for using our resources efficiently, achieving measurable and shareable results, being directly accountable to socially and economically disadvantaged individuals and communities, strategic partners and supporters. We work creatively and openly with key stakeholders in Greater Manchester, including residents of Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester local authorities, charities and other organisations in a common effort to prevent poverty.

At all times we will work with integrity and honesty.
