How can we tackle inequality in Greater Manchester?

Closed 31 Jan 2021

Opened 7 Jan 2021

Overview

The Greater Manchester Independent Inequalities Commission was set up in October 2020 to explore the causes of inequality and offer solutions to tackle these issues.

The Commission has been reviewing evidence from academic research, local equality programmes and insight from the business, public, voluntary and community sectors to recommend new policy, activity and ways of working.

Now, the Commission wants to hear from people who have an interest in making Greater Manchester more equal, particularly those with experience of intersecting inequalities based on their gender, race, class, disability, age, sexuality, migration status, or those working with marginalised groups.

The Commission is looking for practical solutions and concrete actions that can be taken to build a more equal Greater Manchester and to mitigate the unequal impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This will inform the Commission’s recommendations for action, which will be reported to the Mayor of Greater Manchester and leaders of the 10 local authorities in March 2021.
