Scaled programmes bid winners announced

Festival of Ageing


We have recently awarded the contract for our 2018 Festival of Ageing to Manchester-based community charity, 4CT.  The festival will run from 2 to 15 July 2018 and its overarching theme will be the celebration of all the many diverse and positive aspects of getting older.  We appointed 4CT to undertake this work because we particularly liked their vision, energy and enthusiasm, as well as their innovative and creative ideas around various different elements of the festival that could potentially be incorporated.


Community media

We have appointed Social Spider, a well-established social enterprise, to handle our new community media initiative. In addition to being impressed by their long-standing track record of success, we felt they demonstrated the unswerving commitment we need in terms of identifying and exploring and establishing powerful new communication routes with and for our local communities.

Social Spider’s first steps will be to launch an initial scoping exercise to identify and evaluate what is already going on in, both broadcast and online, and where and how more impact can be created.
