In November Manchester Museum and Ketso hosted a half-day workshop to explore the many potential synergies between housing, health and wellbeing. 47 participants from a range of backgrounds, including housing associations, local authorities, the NHS as well as health and mental health charities met to explore creative ways forward. The results from this workshop are being shared as an open resource to support future work and partnerships. For more information and future events click here.
The aims of the workshop were to:
- explore the potential synergies between housing, health and wellbeing;
- gather ideas to help maximize the synergies between these sectors; and to
- open up new avenues for innovation and collaboration.
Ketso, a hands-on toolkit for creative engagement, was used to engage the participants in dialogue and gather their ideas. See the appendices to learn more about Ketso, the workshop process and relevant opportunities with the Manchester Museum.
