Falls Prevention is a priority in Greater Manchester and there is much to be proud of in terms of our joint efforts and commitment to improving the lives of our residents. This event will share the latest thinking, developments and activities which have been happening across a range of stakeholders and localities throughout 2021, with a view to deliver an Ageing Well integrated approach to falls prevention and reconditioning in 2022 and beyond.

This event has been driven by a collaborative partnership that includes senior leaders and colleagues based in the Healthy Ageing Research Group (University of Manchester), GreaterSport, Greater Manchester Ageing Hub, GM Health and Social Care Partnership (including the Frailty Care Reference Group and Adult Social Care Transformation), GM Local Authorities and the voluntary and community sector.
