Welcome to New Start in Greater Manchester. This is the first in a series of editions of the magazine from the UK’s ten core cities. Over the course of the next year we will produce our monthly edition from Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Newcastle, Nottingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Glasgow and Liverpool.
