Ageing Equally? larger research projects

We are delighted to announce that the following organisations will be delivering a research project as part of our programme Ageing Equally?.



  • Europia will work with European expatriates aged 50+ in Tameside, Salford, Oldham and Bolton.


  • Halal Incorp will work with older Muslim men in Central Rochdale.


  • Henshaws will work with visually impaired people aged 50+ in Manchester.



  • Manchester Deaf Centre will work with ageing deaf sign language users aged 50+ in Bolton, Oldham and Tameside.





  • Wai Yin Society will work with members of Sheung Lok Wellbeing Centre of Wai Yin Society aged 50+.


Each of these organisations has received £8,000 to deliver their research project, each focusing on the question, ‘what makes a good place in which to grow older for people who belong to minority communities?’.


Ageing Equally? aims to generate a deeper understanding of what supports wellbeing and what makes places age-friendly for a cross-section of communities of identity or experience within the population of Greater Manchester, in order to prevent social isolation.
