Learning Event: Building Age-friendly Places

This is an opportunity for statutory colleagues to learn from Ambition for Ageing’s approach to delivering place-based working. Join us for an interactive learning event about building age-friendly neighbourhoods.




Over the last five years Ambition for Ageing has been delivering a £10.2m age-friendly programme funded through the National Lottery Community Fund. We now want to share the practical learning developed through our successful work.


About the workshop


We have developed a workshop that will give statutory sector frontline staff and managers a chance to learn from our Ambition for Ageing providers before delivery draws to a close in March 2020.


The workshop will be an opportunity to:


a) Find out more about research-based practical guidance on aspects of place-based working


b) Hear directly from older people and experts involved in Ambition for Ageing and place-based working


c) Mix with people from across GM with similar interests, share knowledge and views and to explore practical ways to build age-friendly places#


d) Take part in an interactive example of creating an age-friendly plan
