After 6 weeks of deliberation our Inquiry in Care at Home produced compelling recommendations for transforming how services in Greater Manchester are commissioned and delivered. The ‘what’ and the ‘why. Following the launch of the Inquiry report we now invite Health and Social Care Commissioners across Greater Manchester to commit to considering ‘how’ the recommendations might be implemented.
Jez Hall of Shared Future and Lynn Sbaih of Give2Gain had the privilege of running a two hour session at the recent Greater Manchester Social Enterprise conference on the ‘Journey of Social Enterprise’. Our purpose was to explore the motivations and reasons why people got into social enterprise, and then, to think more widely about what sustained individuals on their journey.
Shared Future is a social enterprise with a mission - to support other social enterprises. We can help individual enterprises grow, and we deliver innovative social enterprise support programmes that can improve a whole community.
We're serious about participation at Shared Future - encouraging citizens to become more active and influential within their community, their city or society. We're UK leaders in the field of Participatory Budgeting.
Shared Future are leaders in the fields of Participatory Budgeting and Citizen Inquiries/Juries. We can also provide expert advice on Community-Led Planning, Community Empowerment Projects, Ethical Business and Social Responsibility, plus many other areas.
Since Shared Future was founded in 2009, we've built a successful team of experienced consultants and practitioners who offer a diverse range of skills. We work together on worthwhile and stimulating projects that reflect our personal values.
