Everything you need to know about devolution in Greater Manchester

Greater Manchester has the most powerful devolution deal agreed with central Government thus far. Since their historic 2014 devo settlement, Greater Manchester has demonstrated its capability to do things differently and the power and vision to help address the big issues which impact on its people and places. Greater Manchester’s elected Mayor, Andy Burnham has big plans and ambitions to improve life chances and make a difference. He has the powers, and has pledged, to reduce inequalities.  He wants to improve access to education, employment and skills, health and social care and deliver more affordable homes and transport connectivity.  The Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF), its Local Industrial Strategy, its plans to tackle homelessness and make Greater Manchester carbon neutral are all testament to how Greater Manchester is setting the agenda and making a difference.

Come and find out:

  • Why devolution is so important in Greater Manchester: its powers, funding, agenda?
  • How and why is it so ahead of the devo-deals in other city regions?
  • Who are the key decision makers and influencers?
  • Understand the Greater Manchester political culture including the Manchester Ship Canal mentality
  • Who’s who in the Greater Manchester family?
  • How does Greater Manchester influence the rest of the North and central government?

This bespoke course will provide invaluable insight into the political dynamics and landscape in Greater Manchester.  Communications professionals and public affairs practitioners looking to better understand their knowledge about what devolution means should attend
