Promoting and supporting co-operation and partnership working between the voluntary and community sector, the public sector and other relevant bodies to reduce inequalities and to improve the health and wellbeing of people of all ages in Manchester.

How we aim to do this:
• Ensuring that that voluntary and community sector groups maintain knowledge and a practical understanding of the environment in which they operate, including changes in policy and the needs of local communities.
• Championing the voice, impact and value of the sector through relationships with key partner agencies including Manchester City Council and the local NHS as a member of the Manchester Health and Wellbeing Board.
• Enabling the voluntary and community sector to contribute their views and have an impact on policy development and commissioning.
• Promoting the unique value of community based approaches to health, wellbeing and social care and sharing good practice.
• Promoting the knowledge and skills of the voluntary and community sector in supporting wellbeing in the diverse range of communities in Manchester.
• Building opportunities for working in partnership within the voluntary and community sector and with other sectors.
• Raising awareness of unmet needs and the ‘seldom heard’ voices in tackling inequality.
