Connecting communitiesShifting systemsReducing inequalities

We are GoodLives GM.

We are working to reduce inequalities in Greater Manchester by removing
barriers to community-led innovation.

Systems of public services can often create barriers to community-led innovation, limiting its impact and even bringing it to a standstill.

If community-led innovation is to flourish we need to name those barriers, and tackle them together. For example in our leadership and governance arrangements, in how people work together, and in how money and other resources are distributed.

Naming and tackling system barriers

Barriers like these can be shifted. Systems can be enablers.

With focus and collective action we can change our systems so they work better for the people of Greater Manchester.

About GoodLives GM

GoodLives GM is a system shifting capability for Greater Manchester. We are working to reduce inequalities by tackling system barriers to community-led innovation.

GoodLives GM grew from conversations with brilliant innovators across Greater Manchester. They lead powerful work to tackle inequalities, like Elephant’s TrailLiving WellGM Moving and Healthy Hyde. They identified common barriers to embedding community-led innovation. Together, we explored how a system shifting capability could help them tackle these barriers.
