Coronavirus: Our commitment to the voluntary sector in Oldham
From Oldham Council, NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group and Action Together
With the Coronavirus bringing unprecedent challenges, the ethos and spirit of what we call “Team Oldham” – public and community services pulling together for the good of our borough – has never been more needed.
The number of people benefiting from a new way of boosting health and wellbeing has more than doubled in Greater Manchester since last year. With all 10 boroughs now on board, social prescribing is expanding rapidly right across the region.
Progress so far:
Oldham safeguarding children partnerships training offer will complement and enhance existing staff knowledge and skills. Before staff complete any partnership training, they must access the free e-learning module provided. The module is designed to help staff recognise and respond to possible signs of abuse or neglect. It is important for anyone working with or who may come into contact with children. The module takes around 60 minutes to complete and must be completed in one sitting, once completed a downloadable certificate is provided.

Talking about Oldham will help Oldham Council understand what’s important to you and your neighbours. It will help it work out what the priorities should be for where you live and for our great town.
