Football is in the air – make sure you don’t miss out and get a team together with your friends or colleagues!

This is a great opportunity for you and those taking part to raise crucial funds for local youth initiatives that GMYN provide to young people across Greater Manchester.

GMYN provide a vital support service that doesn’t exist elsewhere, delivering urgent, tailored support based on each young person’s needs. GMYN strives to make life-changing differences to young people’s lives, to help break them out of isolation and give them the confidence and ability to make a positive transition to adulthood.

A crucial part of our work is keeping care- experienced young people safe. Care leavers are incredibly vulnerable and most lack any support network. GMYN is their support network.

A young person who takes part in our Manchester care leavers programme says: “GMYN has turned my life around. If it weren’t for them, I don’t know where I’d be right now –they are like my family.”

Phil Harris, Income and Partnerships Lead, says: “We can't wait to kick off the inaugural GMYN Community Cup on Thursday 4th July. Many of the young people we support love playing football so this will be a fitting way for them to engage with our business community and to raise vitals fund for our programmes.”

The Community Cup will take place between 2-5pm, with 60 minutes of guaranteed play time for each team. This will be followed by drinks and a celebratory prize-giving ceremony. All ages, genders and abilities are welcome in this sociable and friendly atmosphere.
