News: Self Care Event in Glossop

Action Together are holding a meeting of the Tameside and Glossop Self Care Alliance on Tuesday 28 November at Bradbury House, Glossop.

Action Together are leading on the development of the Self Care Alliance in Tameside and Glossop, as part of Care Together, the programme working to transform the way we meet health and care needs. The Self Care Alliance is very important to help us to work together on this, helping us to harness the full breadth of skills, experience and resources, not just from within the statutory sector but also the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector and within people’s homes, families and communities.   It will also provide a key route for strategic partnership and so it is important that any groups, organisations or agencies who have a role in improving the health and wellbeing outcomes for people in Tameside and Glossop help us to shape this work.

The focus of the meeting will be what does ‘Self Care’ mean, to develop ideas about what the Alliance should look like, key themes and how to shape the Alliance into something tangible and practical. If you would like to book a place or require any further information, please contact
