Spotlight on: North West Network Forum

Erosh’s Networks are an excellent opportunity for our members to meet, discuss topical issues and share learning and best practice.

Established in 2012 the North West Network currently attracts members from eight organisations across Lancashire,Cheshire, Merseyside and Greater Manchester. Meetings are held quarterly and anyone interested in becoming an erosh member is welcome to come along to an initial meeting before joining.

To date this informal forum has secured a range of excellent speakers including representatives from Age UK and Action on Hearing Loss.

They’ve also benefited from presentations on local and national best practice. For example, Jane Mindar, from housing and regeneration organisation the Riverside Group, came along to to discuss the LiveTime initiative, which delivers services, projects and events specifically for older people. Riverside was amongst the winners of the 2013 erosh Innovation and Good Practice awards for the LiveTime project.

Keele University’s Mo Ray also came to the forum to discuss the first Ageing Studies Certificate which was developed by the university and Manchester City Council’s Valuing Older People’s Team. This unique qualification aims to increase standards in care of older people and has attracted national interest.

If this sounds of interest and you work in the region please come along to the next forum meeting in August, date to be confirmed. To find out more please contact Ken Johnson on 0161 277 5500.
