Transform GM: A Pilot Study of the Social & Solidarity Economy in Greater Manchester

This report is the result of a pilot study into Greater Manchester’s Social & Solidarity Economy (SSE), and draws on work conducted between April and October 2018.

The study was initiated by Jam and Justice’s Action Research Collective, following their desire to map citizen-led and alternative social and economic innovations in Greater Manchester. This led to the project, Transform GM, which was designed to reveal and value below-the-radar economic activities.

This report is primarily written for those within organizations and businesses that potentially constitute this more-than-economic activity, and those in a position to support them – whether that be through policy, procurement, administrative or advocacy work.
