How will Winning Hearts and Minds improve people’s health and wellbeing?

Community led initiatives

The Winning Hearts and Minds programme will work with the local community to offer support and advice that works best for each community. People are at the heart of what we do.

Community focused and culturally relevant campaigns.

Partnership

Lots of fantastic work is already taking place across organisations in Manchester, we want to make the most of what we’ve got and ensure there are no gaps in the service, so everyone has access to the support and information that they need to stay well.

Multi-agency, whole system working to capitalise on opportunities.

Healthy Lifestyles

  2. Tackling inactivity initiative, trying to get people who are physically inactive (less than 30 mins per week) to move more.
