What is 10GM?

10GM supports the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Greater Manchester. We aim to improve the effectiveness and impact of the sector in reducing inequality and improving the lives of people who live, work and study in Greater Manchester.

These local organisations provide a range of support including; organisational and group development; run accredited Volunteer Centres; facilitate locality and thematic networks, action groups and provide strategic representation across a wide range of Partnerships. We work strategically strengthen support for the VCSE sector at borough level and ensure connectivity and engagement across the whole of Greater Manchester.  We represent a combined membership of thousands of local voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations working in communities and neighbourhoods all across the city-region.
