If you were asked to picture our health system you’d probably think of hospitals, GP practices, ambulances and care homes. What you probably wouldn’t think about are nurseries, gyms, woodland adventures and supermarkets.

In Salford, Greater Manchester, one social enterprise is radically changing how a community can address health inequalities through redefining what is possible when it comes to the delivery of care. How? Through genuinely placing communities at the heart of their work, thinking outside the box, setting up businesses to create a sustainable source of income and genuine employee ownership.

Social adVentures is set up with the mission of enabling people to live healthy lives, running a range of health and care services complimented by a variety of different social enterprises. It’s innovative, dynamic and owned by both staff and the communities it serves, offering a blueprint as to what the future of public services could look like.

Join us in this webinar with Chief Executive Scott Darraugh where we will hear more about their story, their incredible work over the pandemic (including transforming a café into a social supermarket tackling food poverty) and what the future has in store for social enterprises working in health and social care.

Social enterprises like Social adVentures are changing how we view public services and will be vital if we’re to reduce the inequalities of health, wealth and opportunity which characterise COVID Britain. Do join us on the 15th for what promises to be an insightful and inspiring interview!
