About Young Manchester

For centuries Manchester has led the way as a city of innovators and leaders. It is a city full of diversity, energy and determination with a growing and youthful population.

With world class sporting, educational, leisure and cultural facilities, Manchester leads the way. But it is our children and young people who hold the key to growing that great tradition of enterprise and innovation.

Manchester is booming and yet 1 in 3 children live in poverty and austerity measures have impacted heavily on Youth and Play provision across the city. Young Manchester is a young, vibrant charity committed to making Manchester a world-class city for children and young people, where they are safe, happy, healthy and able to reach their full potential and benefit from the city’s economic growth.
