Whilst we serve clients the length and breadth of the UK, the north-west is our home and Manchester our ‘local town’. That’s why we’ve decided to support Forever Manchester, the only charity that raises money to fund and support community activity across Greater Manchester. The organisation has an ethos that fits with our family values and belief that relationships are the cornerstone to contentment.
As an official business partner, we’re doing our bit to support Forever Manchester’s work which covers funding; bringing together groups that already exist and then encouraging members of the local community to connect through the groups. The organisation also seeks to understand what people want in their communities and finds ways to make these ideas a reality. Part of this is sharing skills. But the bit we like best is their desire to create ‘happy days’. As Forever Manchester says:
“All the major ingredients that make for a happy, fulfilling life grow out of our communities. Real community thrives on taking part, where passion and shared interests are the key ingredients. Real community delivers a set of unrivalled opportunities — to connect, make friends, share, interact, help, care and discover — things that you just can’t replicate with government or corporate strategy.
“Real community helps deepen and refine our sense of inclusion, belonging and place, it brings out the best in us. Our role at Forever Manchester is to be the champion of local people who are prepared to do extraordinary things to make our communities thrive, and to make sure that the talents, skills and interests that we all possess get a chance to be put into action.
“We are all extraordinary people. We all have the power to create happy, abundant, resilient thriving communities, the freedom to create our own vision of the future and the power to make that vision come true.”
We certainly are looking forward to helping Forever Manchester make a difference to people’s lives.
