Devo Manc hub
Exploring Greater Manchester’s devolution future.
Significant changes are taking place under the heading of Devo Manc. These changes will potentially bring far reaching consequences for those living in Greater Manchester.
What is Devo Manc?
Devo Manc covers several different sets of arrangements and policy areas:
- A directly elected Mayor for greater Manchester
- A Greater Manchester Combined Authority with enhanced powers
- The creation of Greater Manchester Strategic Health and Social Care Partnership Board (GMHSPB), the Greater Manchester Joint Commissioning Board (GMJCB) and the Greater Manchester Federation Board (GMFB)
- Restructuring associated with the Northern Powerhouse
Areas not part of the formal devolution of powers and responsibilities, such as cultural, education and immigration are being rethought in this context.
We're home to a number of research projects that play their roles in shaping how devolution plays out in the immediate future and in the longer term.
