What we do

Programme Challenger is Greater Manchester’s partnership response to serious and organised crime. We are made up of many different agencies, who all work together to disrupt and dismantle individuals and networks committing serious crime in Greater Manchester, including running drug lines, exploiting people for financial gain, buying and using firearms, and laundering the money they make from their criminality.

Practitioner Information

What we do

We want to be able to support a wide range of practitioners who are currently playing their part in tackling serious and organised crime. This takes many forms, and covers many specialisms and disciplines, including safeguarding, community safety, trading standards, mental health and social care, to name a few. By better informing you as a practitioner around trends, threats and models of serious and organised crime, we can better equip the workforce across Greater Manchester, and beyond.
