Social Eating bid winner announced

We are delighted to announce that we have awarded the Social Eating contract to Talk Listen Change  (TLC) who are the lead contractor for the project, working in conjunction with seven other partner organisations.


This exciting new programme seeks to increase the number of opportunities for older people to come together and eat communally in Greater Manchester, thereby creating a range of social occasions where people feel they belong, can bond with existing friends and make new connections.


To this end, we will be piloting a range of social eating projects, intended to become sustainable in the longer term. The learning gained through delivery will be used to create a ‘how to’ guide for people wishing to run similar projects in future. The work will be delivered in 23 wards across Bury, Rochdale, Bolton and Manchester.


We look forward to working with TLC and their partners.  The project has now started and one of the first steps is to recruit a project manager. Click here if you would like to find out more about the role.
