Click the link to take part in a survey from Macmillan who are carrying out work in the north west to look at where people living with or affected by cancer access information and support and how this compares to where they would like to get information from

The JNR8 Youth & Community Centre is the base for the Whalley Range Community Forum, Whalley Range Youth Opportunities Association’s Whiz Youth Project, Celebrate, Age-friendly Whalley Range & Chorlton and Whalley Range Mental Health & Wellbeing.
We lease the building from Manley Park Methodist Church from Monday to Friday providing a range of classes, events and activities including an evening week-day youth club and holiday play for children.

On Friday evenings the volunteer-led wellbeing group Time to Change meet up offering support and removing the stigma around mental ill health by running a social group with pool, music, Tai Chi, bike repairs and to prepare, cook and eat a meal together.

The Church provides regular fundraising coffee mornings and soup lunches for the community and they let the building out on Saturday evenings to Youth on Solid Ground for their weekly youth club.
Our groups love to cook and want to promote and share cooking and eating together to reduce isolation, improve skills and employability and to improve their health.
We could provide so much more if our currently inadequate and practically unusable kitchen was updated and fit for purpose!
Representatives of the groups who share the building are applying for funding under the banner

‘Generate our Kitchen’

Please could you help us by completing our survey to support our request for funding?

The survey is anonymous but you can add your details if you are interested in getting involved.

Consultation on polling districts and polling places

We’re asking for your views and comments on polling places – the buildings in which you vote – and the boundaries of the polling districts – the smaller areas each council ward is divided up into.

Changes to council wards

Manchester’s ward boundaries will change at the local elections on 3 May 2018. Find out more about the changes to council ward boundaries.

Changes to polling districts and polling places

Because the wards are changing we are reviewing the current polling districts and polling places. In some areas of the city these will need to change to take account of the new ward boundaries.

We want your comments and suggestions on:

  • polling places and polling districts where changes are needed
  • the suitability and location of any polling place in the city
  • the size and boundary of any polling district in the city.

See the current ward maps and polling districts.

Read the Acting Returning Officer’s views.

This consultation ends on Friday 8 December 2017.

Call 0161 234 1212 or email if you need more information or maps to help you respond to this consultation. Large print versions are available on request.

We will do a further review in autumn 2018, when you can comment on the current polling places and districts.

Our Manchester Logo

Manchester has high hopes for the next 10 years – based on what residents, businesses and others who care about the city say they want Manchester to become. Besides getting the basics right – bins, roads, schools, transport, parks, etc – Manchester has said it wants to be healthier, happier, better off and greener. It also wants to be the kind of city where every one of us can join in and benefit from our city’s growing success.

Public services like the Council and health services are a key part of making Manchester better. And they want to know how YOU think they’re doing. Not only that: they want to know what part YOU, your family, friends and community could play. Because no single organisation or group can make Manchester into the best it can be. That can only happen we all get involved and play our part.

Make a start by doing this 10-minute survey of how you think Manchester is shaping up.
