About us

MancSpirit is unashamedly Mancunian in both design and delivery

We see being Mancunian as an attitude, not a birth-right, and we value those people and organisations that share our Vision of caring for others, helping those that help others, getting stuck in and getting things done – but doing things the right way, by working with others and respecting their individuality.


MancSpirit is a charity that harnesses Creativity and the Arts to inspire positive mental wellbeing.

We are Greater Manchester’s Mental Wellbeing Charity – committed to improve the mental health of those people who choose Greater Manchester as a home, for a career, for leisure or for learning.

MancSpirit operates across Greater Manchester and harnesses Manchester’s creative scene in the Arts, Crafts and Digital Tech to improve mental health. We do this through providing workshops and events as well as developing projects that increase access to the Arts.


MancSpirit is registered with the Charity Commission in the UK as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). Registered No. 1184128.

The charity is managed by 3 amazing Trustees who between them have extensive experience in in Business, in Start-ups, in Retail, in Tech, in Charity, in Voluntary activity and in Learning.

We are registered to deliver services and represent all areas in Greater Manchester and we will work with local people in Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Thameside, Trafford, Wigan and all Manchester communities to offer a high quality service to all.
