Research into the problem of drug related litter in Manchester 

In early 2017, Manchester City Council’s Population Health and Wellbeing Team commissioned researchers at Manchester Metropolitan University to undertake a piece of research on nature and prevalence of drug related litter in Manchester. The research aims to increase the knowledge and understanding around drug related litter, and provide recommendations on how to reduce or stop incidents through appropriate service development and provision. The researchers are interested in speaking to resident groups about their experiences of drug related litter. If you would like to be interviewed, contact Lizzie McCulloch, Research Assistant on 0772 457 1098, or

We Stand Together

Greater Manchester has a long and proud tradition of celebrating diversity and campaigning for equality and nowhere is that more true than right here in this fantastic city of Manchester.

Recent global events have caused real concern among our communities throughout Greater Manchester and the UK.

Community cohesion doesn’t happen by itself - it’s driven by people like you, making an effort to support one another in our local neighbourhoods. With this in mind, we would like to invite you to this event, which is part of a national initiative joining people across the UK to celebrate diversity and demonstrate solidarity.

This is the start of something really special - it’s about people.

We’re going to get the message out through social media so have a think about what it means to stand together as a united community. Join us.
