We want our citizens’ lives to be bettered, and for them to be empowered by the myriad opportunities a digitally fuelled city region provides. This new blueprint for Greater Manchester digital sets out a three-year approach to meeting our ambitions, and will be reviewed regularly in line with the pace of digital change.

Our priorities have evolved for a refreshed Greater Manchester Digital Blueprint, and are now more clearly focused on delivering benefits that help the city region’s people lead healthier, happier lives.

Each of our five digital priorities, co-designed and developed with the input of key stakeholders is supported by pan-Greater Manchester public sector projects. These combine with inclusive community, local authority, private, not-for-profit and academic work.

Our plan connects the wealth of digital change that’s going on, and will help us reach a shared ambition that underpins and enables both the Local Industrial Strategy and the Greater Manchester Strategy.


Our priorities:

  1. Empowering people
  2. Enabling innovative public services
  3. Digitally enabling all businesses
  4. Creating and scaling digital businesses
  5. Being a global digital influencer
