Greater Manchester

Vibrant, diverse and with a population of 2.8 million, Greater Manchester is where #BeeWell began in 2019. Since then, the annual #BeeWell survey has been delivered in 2021 and 2022, with the third survey to be delivered in the Autumn of 2023.


The Greater Manchester (GM) city-region in the north of England has a number of key strengths that made it an ideal location to launch #BeeWell. The Greater Manchester Combined Authority – who lead on delivering #BeeWell – had an existing commitment to improving young people’s young wellbeing under the direction of Mayor Andy Burnham, who offered his support for #BeeWell.

The region’s proactive young people, schools, voluntary sector and 10 local authorities have all been fundamental in shaping #BeeWell from the very start.

Our success in GM has led to #BeeWell’s expansion to deliver the programme in a second location: Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton, in the south of England, from 2023.


What have we learnt so far?

The #BeeWell survey has collected responses from over 63,000 young people in 192 secondary schools across Greater Manchester. Our interactive Data Hive allows you to explore the data trends by neighbourhood.
