Support City Year Greater Manchester

Manchester has one of the highest rates of persistently disadvantaged children in the country. It is these children that will be disproportionately affected by the loss of learning caused by COVID-19. We need your help now more than ever.

Meaningful engagement

Engagement with our supporters is critical to our impact. Shared networks can lead to innovative collaborations - with pupils from some of our most disadvantaged communities gaining access to outstanding opportunities and our City Year Mentors benefitting from invaluable professional development opportunities and careers advice.

“There is a lot of enthusiasm for what we do in Greater Manchester - both for our innovative approach to overcoming educational disadvantage and for how our young volunteers give back to their local community. We are a small but mighty team, committed to growing our impact across the region."

Dean Thomas-Lowde Head of Programme

A rewarding experience

Our supporters tell us that partnership with City Year Greater Manchester is rewarding for them too. Arrow Global has supported us since we launched and staff members have mentored our young volunteers every year. Known as 'Bridge Builders', their professional background means they can give invaluable advice as our young people plan their future career after their City Year.

“I think my City Year Mentor, Lana, and myself were a fantastic match, she strived to make the most of every opportunity I presented to her, which is something I admire greatly. I know Lana will be a success in whatever path she chooses.”

Carrie Thompson Arrow Global and City Year Greater Manchester Bridge Builder
