Our Year aims to celebrate Manchester’s children and young people through an approach which involves the whole city.


We want growing up in Manchester to be rewarding and, above all, we want to help inspire and enthuse young people, help lift their horizons and increase their access to a variety of activities, opportunities and experiences which will have a profound impact.


A focus on meaningful experiences for young people not only returns us to a sense of normality but gives us the opportunity to turn an inconvenient situation into a platform from which to improve the lives of our youth.
