Our vision for Greater Manchester

In 2018 we outlined our vision for Greater Manchester as follows:

A Greener, More Resilient City Region with Stronger, Healthier Communities, Responsible Businesses & Enhanced Prospects for all Local People

Over the past two years we have continued to support communities in Greater Manchester to make a difference where it’s needed most. Together we have worked to improve, protect and lobby for our local environment, which is increasingly at risk from climate change.

Our multi-sector partnership approach, along with our range of high quality services, has delivered impact in a number of ways, which we have highlighted throughout this report.

Looking forward to 2023, we have reflected on our ambitions in light of the Covid-19 pandemic and have outlined how we will adapt our delivery across 3 core areas as outlined in our Build Back Better statement:

  1. Supporting young people to bounce back
  2. Supporting greener growth
  3. Facilitating the power of communities to respond to the climate & nature emergencies

The following report outlines the reasoning behind these topics and provides recent examples of why we are best placed to deliver against our vision.
