The best of humanity...

The People's Powerhouse teams up with Northern Soul to share GOOD news


Family Activity Pack

We love the North, the people, the places and the communities. What better way to celebrate our cities, towns, villages, hamlets and more, than to talk about what we love about them the most.

The People’s Powerhouse team have developed a pack of activities you can do as a family, to express how you feel about where you live in a time where we are unable to enjoy our communities fully.

Download the pack and email us your completed activities so we can share your wonderful creations.

Why People's Powerhouse?

The People’s Powerhouse is a movement which exists to shape the debate around the Northern Powerhouse, to ensure that people and communities are at the heart of the Powerhouse plans, not the periphery!

The movement formed in response to the lack of women participating in a conference in Manchester, drawing attention to the lack of diverse opinions and experiences represented in the Northern Powerhouse plans.

Our aim is to include the thoughts and opinions, as well as knowledge and expertise from all sectors of society, with a particular focus on how people are the key to meaningful development!

That means you!

We’ve already started to change the conversation about what kind of North we want to be, but the more of us who get involved, the more we will achieve!
