It is always worth remembering that, just like Together, if you support Forever Manchester, you support all of this.

The ability of local community groups and organisations to best help people in their community remains dependant on maintaining support for them.

If, like Together, you own or work for a company based in Greater Manchester, the chances are that 90% of your colleagues live in Greater Manchester and are part of the very communities we support.
