Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Hope Hack brings together young people from across a region to share their views, thoughts, and ideas on how to make their region a safer and fairer place. This event will bring together young people aged 13-21 and from a range of backgrounds.

The views collected from young people at Hope Hack events across the country, will go on to form the basis of a new report, ‘Reimagined’, produced by the Hope Collective. It will be presented to political parties for consideration as they produce their manifestoes ahead of the next General Election. This ground-breaking report will outline what young people would like to see happen to make the UK a better place to live and grow up in.

The YMCA event aligns with several commitments made within the Greater Than Violence strategy and consultation arising from the implementation plan that will sit under the strategy. The VRU is keen to facilitate partnership work that support effective transitions from custody and/or education into further training/employment and the victims lead is attending to bring eLearning back from the YMCA event to GM.


The Greater Manchester Violence Reduction Unit are seeking to make the following payment covering travel & accommodation for the following Hope Hack & YMCA Events on Wednesday 27th and Thurs 28th March 2024:
