Working Together in Oldham Event

Working Together in Oldham Event

Thank you to everyone who made this event the success it was.  We had a fantastic day, with over 200 delegates from across the borough and beyond in attendance for innovative and thought-provoking discussion about Working Together in Oldham.

For those of you who were unable to attend the Working Together in Oldham event, this page provides a summary of the day as well as answers to the questions we were unable to address during the event.

The event aimed to engage and inspire the public, elected members and community partners across Oldham to work together to further develop asset and place based working and thriving communities.
