GMYN on the Road – Bury


Time: 10:00 – 11:30
New Kershaw Centre, Deal Street, Bury, BL9 7PZ.
This event provides a fantastic opportunity to network with other youth organisations, meet members of the GMYN team and learn more about our work across GM. Joining GMYN at the meeting will be Youth Focus NW who will introduce a discussion topic around the establishment of a Greater Manchester Youth Assembly.

As you may know, young people have been developing a unique response to GM devolution, supported by Youth Focus NW, who have been working with the ten local authority youth councils and members of the youth parliament, to establish the Greater Manchester Youth Assembly (GMYA) - which now meets regularly to discuss local and regional issues affecting the lives of young people - this is something which GMYN are keen to promote and support

Spaces are limited, to RSVP please email Nick Rogers This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Evaluation tools and techniques


Time: 12:30 – 16:00
This session will explore what is meant by evaluation, and provide different examples and methods of evaluation. Our two trainers are highly experienced youth work practitioners who utilise evaluation effectively throughout their practice.

Write successful funding bids for work with young people


Time: 9:30 - 12:30
The session aims to enable participants to:

  • Structure applications to give your bid maximum chances of success
  • Understand common reasons why applications fail
  • Make best use time available for fundraising
  • Present organisation and project effectively
  • Understand trends in grant-making
The trainer, Martin Duffy, has an extensive track record of writing successful funding bids to a range of national and local funders. He has also worked in grant-making for 15 years and can therefore offer a perspective on what funders are looking for, trends in current grant-making and the common mistakes that stop people getting funded.



Time: 13:00 – 16:00
Microvolunteering is still a relatively new concept but is changing the way third sector organisations are interacting with the wider public. This training course will help you better understand the concept of microvolunteering; what it is, how people do it and how you can set up easy micro-volunteering actions at your organisation. Previous participants of this training have said “I did not know anything about microvolunteering before. I left with a good idea of what microvolunteering is and how it can be used by young people and organisations” and it was great to see “how easy and accessible it can be”
