Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) works directly with the Greater Manchester VCSE Leadership Group (opens in new tab), which was set up as a coalition of voluntary, community and social enterprise leaders seeking to promote the role and involvement of the VCSE sector and communities in Greater Manchester devolution. Members of the Leadership Group act as ‘catalysts and connectors’ on behalf of the sector.  

In 2020, the leadership group published its policy paper (PDF, 2.5MB), which sets out a long-term ambition for the VCSE sector in Greater Manchester.
