About Greater Manchester Poverty Action

Greater Manchester Poverty Action (GMPA) is a not-for-profit organisation that works to prevent and reduce poverty across Greater Manchester. We have developed extensive knowledge about poverty in the city region, identified a powerful network of stakeholders and organisations who share our values, aims and vision and we have influenced policy and practice in several ways since we were constituted in 2016.

Our vision is of a Greater Manchester free from poverty where all residents can realise their potential and access the benefits of living in a diverse and vibrant city region.

GMPA is working to the following priorities:

  1. Boosting household income and financial resilience.
  2. Ensuring stakeholders in GM embed a strong strategic approach to tackling poverty.
  3. Embedding the voices of people with lived experience in the decision-making structures and systems of GM.

These priorities are at the heart of our three year (September 2021 to September 2024) strategy. Our primary objective is to influence strategic responses to poverty and policies and practices which address poverty. To realise this, and achieve against these priorities and secure the outcomes detailed in our strategy, there are three strands to our work: Advocacy, policy and research, Programmes and Network support.
