Love MCR Charity – Charity Partner

We Love MCR Charity is here to give heart, hope and opportunity to the people of Manchester, when they need it most. We are the only charity dedicated to supporting the City of Manchester’s communities and young people.

At the heart of everything we do is ambition. There are countless ambitious young people and grassroots groups which can’t take their next steps to success due to a lack of money. We award grants which change the situation and enable potential to be fulfilled.

We support ambitious, disadvantaged young Mancunians to take their next steps to success through our Manchester’s Rising Stars Fund (MRSF). And we support and community groups across Manchester to improve lives in their neighbourhoods.

And in the legal field, we have a dedicated MRSF funds to award to talented young people who aim to forge a career in law, but face barriers to their entry. The Maurice Watkins Bursary was launched in 2022 on the anniversary of the death of a great Manchester legal leader, Maurice. It has already made awards to 4 talented future lawyers Maurice Watkins Bursary makes first awards to aspiring Manc lawyers within six weeks!
