Manchester’s Rising Stars Fund

The Manchester’s Rising Stars Fund aims to give young Mancunians a helping hand to take opportunities that may otherwise be out of their reach. Limited finances can be a barrier to many young people, and we recognise that a little financial support at the right time can make a big difference when starting out on a career, self-employment or learning path.
