Social Movements for Health GM  aims to support social movements in Stockport, Oldham,Tameside boroughs; and across Greater Manchester.  It builds on a Stockport inspired approach  outlined by Nick Dixon to hard-wire’ social action into a transformed health and care system.  Co-production with people who are lonely and socially isolated is at the heart of our work.   The project focus on arts and food movements as  means to connect people and enable them to improve their health and wellbeing.

The project is supported by the NHS Health as a Social Movement programme, the National Economics Foundation, (NEF)  Nesta and the Royal Society of Arts (RSA).

NEF have published a health-as-a-social-movement-an-overarching-theory-of-change which sets the framework for the work.
