Ageing

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.

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
