Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has now submitted it’s high-level Investment Plans for the two elements of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF): the core UKSPF and the Multiply adult numeracy programme.

The plans have been developed in consultation with Greater Manchester’s ten Local Authorities and a number of other key partners and stakeholders across the private, public and VCSE sectors, including business networks, learning and education providers, MPs and relevant UK Government departments.

Subject to approval from UK Government of the Investment Plans, GMCA  will be looking to conduct wider engagement activity with partners and stakeholders across the public, private and VCSE sectors in late Summer/Autumn 2022 as they work to develop detailed Implementation Plans for both the Core UKSPF and the Multiply scheme.

The GM VCSE Leadership Group has representatives on the GM UKSPF Partnership Board. This will have a strategic overview of the plans as they develop and we continue to make the case for VCSE involvement in this programme, however most decisions on spending will be driven by localities in Greater Manchester.

We will share details of how people can get involved once they are confirmed over the next few weeks. If you would like to find out more,  visit the GMCA website here. You can also be added to GMCA’s mailing list for any future updates by emailling
