Community Explorers

Macc provides, via the Community Explorers partnership, an opportunity for the voluntary and community sector to work in partnership with Manchester Health & Care Commissioning (MHCC) in health and care service development. The Health and Wellbeing Leaders Forum also provides another route to influence health and wellbeing strategy in Manchester.

Community Explorers
Community Explorers is a network that meets on a monthly basis in north, central and south Manchester. It is a partnership between MHCC and Macc, and aims to bring together anyone with an interest in health and wellbeing from across the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector to influence, connect, share knowledge and build relationships.

It is an informal and valued opportunity to collaborate with others whilst sharing information about services and activities and directly influencing some of the key strategies across the city. The 2021 meeting dates are available below.

With the current Covid-19 related restrictions, Community Explorers also have two 2021 city-wide Pop the Kettle on events as a chance for people to catch up informally. The minutes from the latest locality meetings will be added to this page. 

Community Explorers creates a space to build relationships between VCSE and public sector staff and work across the usual organisational boundaries to look everything that has a positive impact on health and wellbeing beyond access to healthcare services.
