In 2019, Ambition for Ageing hosted the Age-Friendly Challenge on behalf of The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham. Fifty-three neighbourhoods were recognised as age-friendly, or making excellent progress to becoming age-friendly. Click here to see the full list of winning neighbourhoods.
On 6th February 2020, we jointly delivered an event with the GM Ageing Hub to celebrate the success of our age-friendly neighbourhoods in making the city-region one of the best places in the world to grow older. Read more about the event here.
Between now and the end of March 2022, we will provide small pots of funding to invest in local community projects and create opportunities for shared learning and develop connections between neighbourhoods.
We are also delivering a series of events based on feedback and suggestions from age-friendly neighbourhoods across Greater Manchester.
This will help to explore and strengthen the connections within and between these neighbourhoods to support the organic growth of an age-friendly neighbourhoods network.
