Project Spotlight:
We Love Manchester Summer School 2019

We Love Manchester proudly supports young Mancunians. They are our rising stars and future leaders, and some may need a helping hand along the way.

We work with young people through our key projects including Summer School, funded work experience placements, funds and platforms for young entrepreneurs, and personal mentoring opportunities. All projects help to develop key skills for future employment, education and life!

We know that money can often be a barrier to accessing opportunities.  We support the young people we work with in a number of ways, ensuring that financial limits don’t get in the way of young people developing the skills and confidence to succeed.


Grants Programme

We provide funding to community groups and local charities throughout the city of  Manchester, bringing communities together to celebrate diversity, breakdown barriers and help create a better future for the city. The charity wants to celebrate Manchester’s uniqueness, multi­cultural neighbourhoods and youthful energy.
