PCC DN - VRU Venue Booking and Catering – GM Hosted Hope Hack Event

The reasons for the decision are:

The Hope Collective is a powerful partnership of cross-sector organisations with aligned values and a shared vision; to work together in a spirit of unity to create real change for young people and communities across the UK.
Formed originally to support the 20th anniversary legacy campaign for Damilola Taylor, the Hope Collective is driven by a shared purpose - to establish real change that enables UK's most vulnerable communities to be free from poverty, violence and discrimination. Through activity led by the Hope Collective, young people can discuss their thoughts and solutions on issues that affect them, their lives and their communities. The goal of the Hope Collective is to 'change the narrative' for young people and focus on solutions, not symptoms, and most importantly to focus on their hopes for the future.

The Greater Manchester VRU has organised its second Hope Hack event in collaboration with Programme Challenger, to provide a platform for young people across the ten districts, to explore their thoughts on how to make the city region a safer and fairer place for all.
