Greater Manchester

We are thrilled to be supporting One Million Mentors to extend their programme in Manchester. We want to build on the successes this has already realised for so many young people in the City, ensuring young people are matched to positive role models that can guide them into successful training and career opportunities that improve their life chances.

Piloted in Greater Manchester from January to July 2017, One Million Mentors has expanded into Oldham City Council and Salford, where child poverty rates are among the highest in England.*

In Greater Manchester:

  • Children have a lower life expectancy
  • More children under 20 live in poverty
  • Children have worse health

We can help young people overcome these challenges and reach their potential.
