Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester with a national political profile, is opening Swoboda’s Credit Union Conference in Manchester on 11th November. The focus of the conference is on the cost-of-living crisis, and the Mayor is going to offer his thoughts on the role credit unions can play in their communities, followed by a Q&A.
Responsible for shaping the future of Greater Manchester, Andy’s priorities include building a London-style integrated transport system, ending rough sleeping, transforming Greater Manchester into one of the greenest city regions in Europe and making Greater Manchester a great place to grow up, get on, and grow old. He is also on record as aspiring for Manchester to be a leading region for co-operation and was recently involved in encouraging Oldham Athletic FC to become a fan-owned club.
Before being elected Mayor of Greater Manchester in 2017, Andy was MP for Leigh from 2001 and held several positions in government, including Secretary of State for Health.
