Aligning with Greater Manchester priorities
Our principles and outcomes are clearly aligned to the new Greater Manchester Strategy adopted by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority but there are some differences in Bolton and Bolton Vision will make clear choices about where our priorities lie.
Taking stock and moving the partnership on:
Engaging better with young people
At the request of our Youth Council and Youth MPs, we held our first Youth Vision conference in 2017 and have held the second in July 2018 ensuring our young people have an opportunity to engage and shape the future that they want.
Creating Social Value in Bolton
A small group from across the partnership are working on a proposition to ensure that partners resources achieve the best possible social, economic and environmental outcomes.
Reconsidering structure and purpose
Partners have also accepted that the time is right to refresh the make-up and operation of the partnership and will agree a new way of working with a new action plan in the coming months.
Bolton will be a welcoming place where people choose to study, work and put down roots.
