Drugs and Alcohol Strategy Listening Event


Following the successful engagement events that have taken place during 2017, Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership (GMHSCP) are keen to involve key VCSE sector colleagues in developing the final version of the GM Drug and Alcohol strategy and shaping a potential investment proposal to the GM Transformation Fund. Further, we would like to sense check the emergent high level Outcomes Framework and Common Standards in relation to drugs and alcohol. This important workshop is geared towards progressing this programme of work towards completion by March-April 2018. Confirmed key speakers at this event are Dave Boulger, Head of Population Health, GM Health and Social Care Partnership, Jennet Peters, Criminal Justice and Partnerships Lead, GMCA and Mark Knight, Substance Misuse Lead, GMCA.
