Age Friendly Places in Practice: Applying Learning to Real Life

We are excited to invite you to our series of online practice-based workshops on key issues for those developing age-friendly place-based work in localities across Greater Manchester, as we emerge from Covid-19 restrictions.


Each workshop will focus on a specific area of learning from Ambition for Ageing. Over the last six years, the programme has developed an evidence base on communities, ageing, equalities and co-production, and we want to share this learning and provide an opportunity to apply it in practice.


The workshops are designed for anyone working to make neighbourhoods more age-friendly, including project managers, community development workers, and neighbourhood volunteers.


Each workshop will include practical examples, a guest presentation, an opportunity to share ideas with other practitioners, and space to reflect on applying the learning to your own area.


There will be three workshops over the course of three weeks, with each being repeated to ensure everyone who wants to attend is able. You can attend just one workshops or all three.
