New Report on Supporting Ageing in a Place by funding small, local projects

GMCVO-led programme Ambition for Ageing are excited to share their new report which examines the legacy of Ambition for Ageing by drawing on the lessons learned over seven years of supporting projects to improve age-friendliness and social connections across a range of neighbourhoods.

As the programme comes to a close on 31st March 2022, they have compiled recommendations relating to key learning areas; equality, co-production, making investments, delivering a microfunding programme inclusively, the importance of connectivity within a place, taking a place-based, sustainability, and taking a test and learn approach.

The report includes a process evaluation of ‘Supporting Ageing in Place’; a Greater Manchester-wide microfunding programme intended to help connect older people in neighbourhoods by funding small projects of up to £2,000.

Later this month, Ambition for Ageing will also be launching a Good Practice Guide that provides practical information on delivering your own microfunding programme.
