G.M.C.V.O. hosted a mayoral hustings for the Greater Manchester voluntary, community and social enterprise (V.C.S.E.) sector via Zoom on Wednesday 14 April.

The hustings was attended by three of the mayoral candidates; Andy Burnham (Labour), Simon Lepori (Liberal Democrats) and Stephen Morris (English Democrats).

All candidates emphasised the value they place on the V.C.S.E. sector and expressed a desire to work more closely with our sector. Andy Burham also committed to implement the Greater Manchester V.C.S.E. manifesto pledges in full if re-elected.

The manifesto is the result of discussions and consultation with a large number of V.C.S.E. leaders and networks and was sent to the mayoral candidates. A recording of the event is available to view here.
