People and organisations creating community wealth, funders doing things differently, and commissioners from different sectors came together this week to share practice and learning about growing community wealth, ownership and opportunity in Greater Manchester – and what it takes to enable it to thrive.

Supporting our mission to ensure people and communities are at the heart of Greater Manchester’s model for health and wellbeing, attendees worked together to answer the question ‘How can communities have collective control over local wealth and assets, so they can build their own path to Live Well?’

After hearing from lots of brilliant community organisations about what they are doing to support people’s wealth, health and wellbeing, everyone explored how we can grow opportunities together, and what public services can do differently, to invest in communities and enable community-led health and wellbeing to flourish.
