Nigel Rose, Strategic Lead (Commissioning), at Macc was involved in facilitating and contributing to the North Manchester Inquiry into increasing the strength of the voluntary sector and the final recommendations paper is now available here. There is an ongoing working group which Sarah Whitelegg, Capacity Building Team Manager, is part of.
This paper explains the work undertaken by the North Inquiry Panel which was formed to explore the issues around strengthening the voluntary and community sector in North Manchester. The paper explains the process that was taken, lists evidence that was gathered and provides the recommendations made by the panel.
The paper also provides a list of who was on the inquiry panel and next steps for a proposed North Steering Group to continue the work.
