Macc delivers a wide range of these services including:

  • capacity building for local groups
  • support for local people wishing to volunteer (Volunteer Centre Manchester)
  • policy support, insight and influence - including convening the city’s Voluntary and Community Sector Assembly.

As a charity whose purpose is to support and develop other voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector organisations, Macc believes it is important for us to model best practice. Below are some of the policies we use to inform the way we work as an organisation and an employer.

Macc statement and support to Black Lives Matter

George Floyd was murdered. He was not the first victim of police brutality and nor is America the only country in which this happens. At Macc we want to express our solidarity and support to the Black Lives Matters movement and for our brothers and sisters, in Minneapolis, Manchester and around the world rightly fighting for racial and social justice.
