Greater Manchester VCSE Assembly

The first draft has been published of the strategy for Population Health. This is the first of the four big areas of work in the Taking Charge Strategy and is about enabling people to take responsibility for keeping themselves and their families more healthy.  This is extremely relevant to very many community groups, voluntary organisations and social enterprises in Greater Manchester – not just those who see themselves as delivering health outcomes. It will cover issues like food, physical activity, volunteering, transport, housing, environment, play and so on. This meeting gives an opportunity to get in early and talk directly to public sector colleagues responsible for developing the strategy.
