Heart and Soul Get-Together
Commencing in 2020, Heart & Soul Get-Together is a community-led research project, which began by reimagining Woodhouse Park in Manchester, as a healthier place. Local residents explored what health meant to them, and collected evidence by going for walks, on a range of health themes including community, nature and the environment, healthy food and ease of movement.
This resulted in a Vision Map comprising 26 great ideas to make the neighbourhood a healthier place, which was then shared for feedback with 175 community members.
In 2022 Waymarking is working with the newly formed Heart & Soul Community Research Team made up of local residents, to action some of the healthier neighbourhood ideas, such as a Walking Trail and community-led regeneration of local parks in the area.
This programme is in partnership with MCRactive and other local partner organisations.
