Introduction to the Greater Manchester Cancer Vanguard 'Health as a Social Movement' project

Introduction to the Greater Manchester Cancer Vanguard 'Health as a Social Movement' project

 

 

 

Our aim is to mobilise a citizen-led social movement for cancer prevention by working through the voluntary sector. This project is harnessing the energy of the voluntary sector and Greater Manchester (GM) citizens which is currently centred on cancer research, treatment and survivorship to understand what motivates people to make lifestyle choices and help tip the balance towards prevention. We are connecting what already exists, drawing on the intelligence of communities that face health inequality and identifying ways to help change happen.
