All new first year student nurses (just over 300) at the University of Manchester will be studying neighbourhoods across Manchester, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford over the coming weeks.

All Health and Wellbeing
NHS England is seeking your views on proposals to tackle the causes of preventable ill health in England. In launching the consultation NHS England has said: “We know that our health is shaped by the environment in which we live, the choices we make, and the services we receive. We need to take action on each of these”. The consultation on 14 October 2019.
Applications are invited for grants to harness the creativity and capacity of the voluntary sector to improve outcomes for those living with FASD and their families, and to reduce the number of alcohol exposed pregnancies.
£473k is available for bids to commence in financial year 2020/21. The aim is for a smaller number of grants and therefore application via consortia where projects align are encouraged.
We Are Undefeatable aims to inspire the one in four people in England who live with one or more long-term health condition to be active.
We Are Undefeatable recognises the unique barriers that those living with health conditions face and it is the first time a campaign has shown the emotional stories of men and women living with a variety of conditions getting active in ways that work for them.

Urban residents are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, poor air quality and a lack of green spaces to exercise in and enjoy.
Green Infrastructure (GI) can help to create healthier, happier environments and make our cities and towns more economically, socially and environmentally sustainable and resilient.
This free seminar will bring together a range of speakers who will explore this very issue and how trees, woods and other GI can positively impact on both people’s physical health and mental wellbeing.
This seminar will consider how the use of shared spaces and places can address issues faced by children and older people, by looking at the Intergen model which has been tried and tested over twenty years. The seminar will cover the model, how it works and outcomes so far.
Speaker: Norma V Raynes PhD, Generation to Generation
