The Public Purse, Manchester’s Independent Think Tank – working on national and regional projects to help support the government and local authorities and disadvantaged and vulnerable members of society. From tackling the national debt to helping eradicate homelessness.

The Public Purse is committed to driving social change.

We want to support, lobby, raise funds and create solutions for issues that affect us both societally and economically. To understand the link between a robust economy and a more prosperous and engaged community, and how this link will help generate the solutions to many common, long-lasting problems. Illiteracy, poverty, declining national mental health, disconnected societies, and loneliness.

We encourage collaboration and want to create platforms that drive change.
