Our work in Greater Manchester

From leading research to running programmes, we've been driving the anti-poverty agenda in Greater Manchester since 2016

Greater Manchester Poverty Action is now Resolve Poverty

Working locally to end poverty nationally

Resolve Poverty is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working with local authorities and partners across the country to see an end to poverty. We believe in the power of places to boost living standards and create communities where everyone can thrive, providing leading guidance and support to develop powerful strategic, policy and practical responses to poverty.

Local anti-poverty strategies

Poverty is on the rise, but the UK Government has no plan or strategy to address poverty. We support local authorities and other public bodies to develop their own anti-poverty strategies.

The socio-economic duty

The socio-economic duty can act as a powerful tool for addressing poverty and creating a fairer society. We campaign for national enaction of the duty and provide implementation support to public bodies voluntarily adopting it.
