2.    That the Commissioners’ reflections in respect of the ‘good work’ and ‘some progress on process’ being made and the need for Greater Manchester to go further and faster, deeper and wider in tackling inequalities be noted.


3.    That approval be given to the proposal that going forward:


  • The GMS and GMS progress reporting will be the vehicles to steer a systemwide approach to addressing inequalities
  • The Tackling Inequalities Board will provide the necessary leadership and governance to continue to hold the system to account on our equalities commitments
  • The ongoing coordination work between existing governance boards around this agenda will further enable the embedding of responding to the inequalities into ‘everybody’s business’ and will ensure that the right system ownership and leadership is in place to drive actions in response to the issues presented
