We Love Manchester is the official charity of the Lord Mayor of Manchester set up to improve the lives and life chances of Manchester people.
Known before as the Lord Mayor of Manchester's Charity Appeal Trust, in October 2011 we became the We Love MCR Charity and adopted the look and feel of the hugely successful I Love Manchester campaign which became the symbol of the positive action taken by residents and businesses following disturbances in the City in the Summer of that year.
Since then we have supported over 140 community organisations.
Our Board that represents Manchester residents, businesses and good causes, want more people to have a say in the way we raise and use our funds. This is why we are a founding partner of #MakeMCR, the civic online crowdfunding initiative that aims to promote and support good ideas by and for Manchester.
The Board also wanted to become more directly involved in initiating and supporting projects around themes that mean a lot to Manchester - Creativity, Enterprise, Sport and Employment.
The Manchester Youth Market programme is a perfect example of what the charity is all about.
Because we don't have all the expertise in house to deliver this ambitious programme ourselves we will be working with partners such as The Manchester College, both our universities and The Prince's Trust.
We think it would be a great project for Manchester.
