On Tuesday 1st March 2022, we were joined by over 100 colleagues and friends to celebrate the impact and achievements of 7-years of Ambition for Ageing as the programme comes to a close on 31st March 2022.
We produced a video to highlight the impact made to different organisations and communities across Greater Manchester.
Yasmin Holgeth, Buzz Manchester Health and Wellbeing Service, shared how funding from Ambition for Ageing supported the development of age-friendly benches in Gorton.
Moaz El Sayed, Rethink Rebuild Society, speaks about his organisations involvement in our Ageing Equally research project. Rethink, Rebuild Society used funding from Ambition for Ageing to research what makes a place age-friendly for older Syrian Refugees in Salford and Oldham.
Finally, Mel Chapman, John Hendrickson and Shirley Odell speak about the GM GOLD; a research project carried out by a team of 16 older people with learning disabilities which aimed to reduce social isolation amongst older adults with learning disabilities and to find out what makes somewhere an age-friendly place to live for them.
