How Forever Manchester is making our neighbourhoods happier and safer places


Forever Manchester is the only charity that raises money to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester. They believe that everyone should have the opportunity to be happy and they’d love you to become part of this growing movement.

In every neighbourhood across Greater Manchester there are thousands of people involved in community activity.

In fact, at any given time there are an unbelievable 20,000 local grassroots projects of varying sizes and interests taking place.

Forever Manchester works with local people in our communities to inspire and encourage projects that they want to see, to make their neighbourhoods happier and safer places.

All money raised by Forever Manchester is used to fund and support over 1,000 community projects in Greater Manchester every year. In fact, since Forever Manchester was established in 1989, they have delivered over £39 million into local communities, benefiting 1.1 million people.

If your home or business is in Greater Manchester, Forever Manchester will have helped community activity within one mile of it.

Every year Forever Manchester raises money by hosting a wide range of innovative and enjoyable fundraising activities. The remainder comes from generous donations from individuals and local business.

Whether you are a company or an individual, with your generosity and support Forever Manchester can continue to help Greater Manchester’s communities become even greater.
