Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation

Have your say

One of the main aims of GMCVO is to represent the needs and views of our members – this helps us to offer genuine collaborative leadership to Greater Manchester’s voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.

We are keen, therefore, to find out what you think about a number of topical issues and will from time to time post short surverys here:

A Greater Manchester Survey to better understand how to support working carers

Following the launch of the Carers Charter for Greater Manchester in January, the GMHSC Partnership has demonstrated its commitment to carers and adopted the Working Carers Pledge. The pledge was developed using established good practice and research by carer organisations and outlines twelve commitments to working carers such as support with balancing multiple roles, help to stay healthy and well, and access to support and information they might need.

As we begin to look at how we make sure working carers across Greater Manchester receive the support they need, a survey has been developed to understand the different challenges working carers can face and the support made available to them by their employer.

This survey is open to all working carers in the region and can be completed here

Survey by Greater Manchester Poverty Action 

Greater Manchester Poverty Action are interested in understanding how they can develop their work to better meet the needs of organisations across Greater Manchester and beyond who share their passion for tackling poverty. To this end, they have been thinking about different types of training that they could offer and how they could develop courses and a bespoke consultancy offer that enhances the work of organisations in their network.

To help with this work they are requesting GM VCSE organisations and others to complete the following short survey. It should take between 5 and 10 minutes to complete. Answers will be treated in confidence. To access the survey, click here.

Review of Health and Justice 

Professor Eddie Kane, Director Centre for Health and Justice, at University of Nottingham is nearing the end of a review of service for three cohorts of victims of crime on behalf of GMCA: Sexual Violence and Abuse Victims/Survivors; Victims/Survivors of Domestic Violence; and Young People.

The University of Nottingham and Centre for Mental Health are carrying out a review of services in Greater Manchester and they want to hear what people who use these services have to say.

This is a confidential survey and it will help them understand what people who use the services across Greater Manchester think about them and how they could be improved.
