GM Policy Network

On 30 June 2022, colleagues from across a Greater Manchester met to discuss levelling up challenges and opportunities to develop new collaborations between local authorities and other policy organisations. Participants heard form Prof Andy Westwood and Rachel Wolf before incubating ideas for the group to take forward. This session was hosted by the University of Manchester at the Alliance Manchester Business School.

Since then, we’ve held sessions on:

  • citizen participation with Prof Liz Richardson and Donna Hall;
  • cost of living and use of data with Paul Holmes from MCC and Sophie Wozmirska from Coop; and
  • demystifying GMCA with a range of GM colleagues.

If you’re working at one of Greater Manchester’s local authorities, the combined authority or any other policy organisation and interested in networking with other likeminded policy colleagues, please contact Ellie Burr to be added to the mailing list. If you’d like to shape the future programme, please contact one of the steering group or Karishma Chandaria.

Steering Group: James Binks (MCC), Kathryn Rees (Stockport), Simon Haworth (Wigan), Emily Brook (Metro Dynamics), Jay Amin (CAPE Fellow, UoM).
