The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, has issued the second round of his Age-Friendly Challenge: Neighbourhoods to 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, GMCVO project Ambition for Ageing will find practical examples of what age-friendly really means and share best practice across the city region.
Successful areas will be awarded with accreditation – official recognition from the Mayor and Combined Authority that your neighbourhood is age-friendly.
Accredited areas will be promoted by Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and the Mayor as examples of best practice, including to external funders.
