North Manchester Youth Partnership

The North Manchester Youth Partnership consists of Manchester Youth Zone, Young Manchester and 8 local organisations aiming to make Manchester a world-class city for children and young people where they are able to realise their full potential and prosper from the city’s economic growth.

The partnership’s focus is on social action through youth work, enabling more young people to take part in positive activities which develop themselves whilst benefiting others in the north of Manchester. Social action involves activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering, all of which enable participants to make a positive difference to their communities. 

This work has been made possible by grant funding from Young Manchester, who are supported by Manchester City Council and the #iwill Fund.
