Social Movements for Health GM  aimed to support social movements in Stockport, Oldham,Tameside boroughs; and across Greater Manchester.  It built 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 was at the heart of our work.   The project focused on arts and food movements as  means to connect people and enable them to improve their health and wellbeing.

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

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

The RSA and NEF published a final report with lessons learned for the future.  The work ended in 31 March, 2018.  See the Home page and Contact page for further information.
