What We Do

What We Do

Our vision is to make Greater Manchester one of the best places in the world to grow up, get on and grow. The Greater Manchester Strategy sets out a set of clear priorities for delivering this goal, including:

  • All children to start school ready to learn
  • Young people equipped for life
  • Good quality housing, and an end to rough sleeping
  • Greater Manchester to pioneer a positive vision for growing older

Called ‘Our People, Our Place’, the new Greater Manchester Strategy is a long term blueprint for the future of the 2.8m people who make up our region.

The plan looks at 10 priority areas which affect all Greater Manchester residents and details how life will be improved for all who live in the city-region, from being ready for school, to starting work and growing old, as well as everything else in between.
