Manchester has a proud history of solidarity of standing up for those who need help. From Peterloo to the Pankhursts, our city gives a voice to the voiceless. We stick together here, we know the power of community and know that, as Mancunians, we have far more in common than that which divides us. And the Manchester of today is no exception.

Sir Howard Bernstein
Endowment Fund

The Sir Howard Bernstein Endowment Fund has been established for the benefit of young Mancunians, following a successful fundraising event to celebrate Sir Howard Bernstein’s retirement from Manchester City Council. Through the fund we aim to support the city’s young people to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to succeed in education, employment and enterprise.
