The Ghana Union of Greater Manchester is a non-profit voluntary organisation committed to serving Ghanaians, friends of Ghana and the general public. Over the years, it has been working hard within the community to provide a voice for Ghanaians and friends of Ghana. It works closely with other voluntary organisations and external agencies for the common good of the community.
This page presents an overview of what services the Union offers to the community.
The Organisation’s existence and operations are guided by its Constitution, which is available for download.
SUPPORT & GUIDANCE
We give support and guidance in the following areas: Passport and Visa applications, Immigration, Health and much more.
Our community welfare is paramount. We visit the sick and the elderly, support the bereaved and organise events within the community.
We take delight in Ghana’s diverse culture and traditions and endeavour to showcase it by raising awareness through our involvement in community events such as the Manchester Day Parade, the Festival of Manchester and much more.
The Union in the past had run a Saturday Supplementary School for pupils. At that time, the School had been supported by the Manchester City Council’s Children’s Services and the National Opportunities Fund (NOF). Consideration is being given to reactivating this aspect of our services.
The organisation is in constant communication with new arrivals and offers any tangible support and advice about life in the UK. Contacts are established with students in the Manchester Universities and also across the Greater Manchester region.
We endeavour to capture the experiences of members of the community to pass on knowledge for the benefit of current and future generations.
