Step up MCR

Connecting people, growing communities, supporting giving

Step Up MCR is the new place-based giving scheme for Manchester, focussing on Ancoats & Beswick and Clayton & Openshaw

Step Up MCR brings people together from within the community to make the most of our combined resources, energy, and skills for the benefit of local people. It's so important that people feel happier, healthier and more connected, which is why we’re investing in the unlimited human potential that exists in our areas to boost the overall health and wellbeing of the place. Anybody can give back to the community - whether it’s time, money, resources, skills, knowledge or space.

You can support community-led projects by donating to one of our live Crowdfunders below!
