August newsletter

#BeeWell Wednesday | August Newsletter 


Almost 200 schools are signed-up to take part in #BeeWell 2022/23 

Thank you to all our partners for your fantastic help in spreading the word to as many schools as possible about Year 2 of #BeeWell. We are excited to be joined by new schools getting involved for the first time, and to continue working together to make young people’s wellbeing everybody’s business. 


The Politics Project holds 10 #BeeWell Digital Dialogues across Greater Manchester 

Throughout July, The Politics Project held one Digital Dialogue session in each of the ten local authorities of Greater Manchester, bringing together Year 8 pupils, their elected representatives and Council officials to explore the #BeeWell data. The conversations brought fantastic insight into what is driving the #BeeWell data, exploring topics including safety, loneliness, transport, physical activity and places to go.  

For more information on what was discussed in these sessions, read the full briefing from the Politics Project here.
