We have just published the report into the Health and Faith Sector conference which was held to improve the well-being of people across Greater Manchester.

Following on from the Faith in Mental Health and Voluntary Sector Conference last year, a great deal of work has been done to inspire collaborative working between Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership (GMHSCP) and the faith sector in Greater Manchester. 

This conference provided opportunities for faith organisations and health and social care partnership professionals to engage with each other and discuss an emerging Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between these sectors.  It also provided opportunities for patients, carers and faith organisations to share experiences, knowledge and expertise and to influence the MoU. 

More than 150 people attended the summit in Salford last November to agree how religious communities can work closely with health and social care leaders to transform lives. The photograph above shows GMHSCP Chief Officer Jon Rouse speaking at the event.

The conference was held by the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership and supported by the Network.

The report details what happened on the day, from speeches to roundtable discussions, and looks at the feedback and evaluation from the event.
