Health Creation: Wealth Creation – fighting health inequalities using community assets

  • Kings Housing Conference Centre Sydney Street Manchester M1 7HB England (map)

Headlined by Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester, and supported by top-class speakers, compelling case studies and people with lived-experience, Health Creation: Wealth Creation – fighting health inequalities using community assets will be a pivotal event in the transformation of health economies across the north.

Supported by Capsticks, NESTA, Power to Change and a number of leading housing organisations, this free-to-attend event will provide a unique platform for learning through the exchange of ideas, delegate-informed discussion, debate and problem-solving. We expect the learning to continue long after the Summit, through self-organised learning groups started at the event.

More specifically the Partnership Summit will:

  • Explore and discover how the various types of assets – citizens, physical assets and the workforce, can play a role in creating health and in addressing the burning injustice of health inequality

  • Inspire systems leaders and frontline practitioners to change the way they work, in partnership with citizens, to make better use of the assets on their doorstep

  • Explore and find solutions to some of the ‘wicked issues’ that are presenting barriers to progress
