Who We Are
The Trafford Partnership brings together organisations from across the public, private, voluntary, faith and community sectors and local residents to achieve a common vision, to ensure Trafford is a place where our residents achieve their aspirations, and our communities are thriving.
Partners include Trafford Council, Greater Manchester Police, Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service, Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group, Trafford Housing Trust, Irwell Valley Housing Association, Your Housing Group, Trafford College, Trafford Leisure, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, Voluntary Community Action Trafford, Healthwatch Trafford, Pulse Regeneration, Department for Work and Pensions, Intu Trafford Centre, Manchester Growth Company, Greater Manchester West Mental Health Trust, Pennine Care Foundation Trust, Central Manchester Foundation Trust, University Hospital South Manchester, BlueSCI and Amey.
Following an extensive review, the Trafford Partnership has been streamlined under three themes – Health and Wellbeing, Growth and Strong Communities. This enables clear connectivity with the Greater Manchester Strategy (Growth and Reform) and effective engagement with residents and the community. Terms of reference and membership of the refreshed Health and Wellbeing and Strong Communities Boards and the new Growth Board have been reviewed and updated, as has the new Trafford Partnership Board (formerly the Trafford Partnership Executive). The three boards meet four times per year, simultaneously in the morning, followed by a networking lunch, with the Trafford Partnership Board meeting in the afternoon, ensuring cross-thematic and cross-sector information sharing and collaboration.
Underneath each board are task and finish groups delivering priority projects, aligned with a strategic partnership overseeing delivery of a thematic strategy (e.g. Safer Trafford Partnership). All boards and partnerships bring together appropriate public, private, voluntary and community sector representatives. Similarly, Locality Partnerships are open and inclusive networks which bring together people who live and work in a locality to share information, network and engage, using creative techniques to connect partners with communities and develop new projects, harnessing their collective passion, assets and resources. Each Locality Partnership has representatives on the Strong Communities Board, enabling a clear line of communication from Greater Manchester, through the Trafford Partnership, to local communities.
