Action Together is a registered charity that works across Oldham and Tameside, two areas of Greater Manchester. Each year we hold an annual general meeting to report back to our members on our activity and finances. We also publish an impact report / annual report about our work along with a detailed financial statement that can be found on the Charity Commision website.
We are run by a board of trustees. These are unpaid positions that help govern and steer the organisation. The honorary officers are elected by the board of trustees at its first meeting after the AGM. In addition, the board have the power to co-opt up to three additional trustees to bring additional skills to the overall leadership of the organisation. Click here to find out more.
We have a membership that is made up by representatives of the groups and organisations we help. They can become members of Action Together and have a say in our future direction. Find out more about membership.
Like many of the organisation we help, we rely heavily on a team of 130 wonderful people who volunteer their time to help us. Volunteers carry a number of roles across our work from drivers on our Miles of Smiles project, to admin and reception support in our offices, to carrying research for our projects.
The day to day running of the organisation is overseen by our Chief Executive Liz Windsor-Welsh and her team. Liz is appointed by the Trustees. We have a staff team of around 55 people working out of two offices, one in Oldham and one in Ashton-under-Lyne.
