Event description
You are invited to take part in a 100 Day Challenge - a great opportunity to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for Manchester people

About this Event

Welcome! You are invited to take part in one our our Nesta 100 Day Challenges.

Put simply, a 100 Day Challenge gives a team 100 days to try to improve something, to try something new and to work in a different way. It is a unique environment to work in as it encourages teams to:

  • Work across boundaries - services and organisations that may have never met each other, are brought together to share their knowledge and resources. It is a great opportunity to work more closely with voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations.
  • Involve local residents and people with lived experience in the design of services and what we offer locally.
  • Try something new - with such a mix of services and people, the teams are able to come up with new innovative ideas and ways of working.
  • Act quickly - change can be slow the health and social care system, with only 100 days to act, the team has a sense of urgency. It is always amazing to hear how much has been achieved in such a short amount of time.
  • Build relationships - not just as an integrated neighbourhood team, but with local organisations and residents too.
