GMCVO is the Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation. We support voluntary and community groups across Greater Manchester, enabling them to improve their local neighbourhoods and the lives of the diverse communities living there. We want to work with mapping and communications experts Countryscape to develop a tool kit and training package that will enable groups to use maps to innovate, communicate and strengthen their work. Mapping will help individual organisations demonstrate their impact in a striking way, improve their effectiveness and spread the message about the work they do. It will also promote collaborative working, deepen local knowledge and – crucially - provide a tool to engage with statutory and other funders by providing evidence of the massive contribution they make to their neighbourhoods.
