Connected Growth: developing a framework to drive inclusive growth across a city region

Submission to the Inclusive Growth Commission drawing on interviews with members of Greater Manchester’s VCSE Devolution Reference Group and a workshop with VCSE leaders from across the North West.

The central tenet is that if we are serious about inclusive growth, then we need to develop a new relationship with communities drawing on the potential of the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.

Submission collated by: David Beel, Martin Jones (University of Sheffield), Warren Escadale (Voluntary Sector North West) and Ian Rees Jones (Cardiff University). The submission represents the views of the authors.
