Ageing

We want to improve the lives of people aged 50 and over living in Greater Manchester. Our vision is that older residents are able to contribute to and benefit from sustained prosperity and enjoy a good quality of life.

Working with our partners we have set up the Greater Manchester Ageing Hub to coordinate a strategic response to the opportunities and challenges of an ageing population.

Age-friendly challenge

The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, has issued an Age-Friendly Challenge to help make Greater Manchester the best place in the UK to grow older.

Greater Manchester is already the UK’s first age-friendly city-region according to the World Health Organization. Great news! But what does that look like in reality?

Through the Mayor’s age-friendly challenge, we're finding practical examples of what age-friendly really means and sharing best practice across the city region.

Why is it important to create an age-friendly city-region? 

Our priorities are:
  • to build on our position as the first age-friendly city-region in the UK
  • to be a global centre of excellence for ageing, pioneering research, technology and new ideas
  • to increase economic participation among the over 50s 

We want to establish the age-friendly model as a framework for ensuring social inclusion in later life across Greater Manchester, with an emphasis on co-design with older people and improving the quality of later life in Greater Manchester.

Key work strands:
  • Economy and work
  • Age-friendly places
  • Healthy ageing
  • Housing
  • Planning and transport
  • Culture and learning
  • Communications
