Creating an age-friendly Manchester as an inclusive and accessible urban environment that promotes healthy and active ageing is Manchester‘s programme of work for 2020.
It's aim is to become an age-friendly city where older people are more able to enjoy a good quality of life. The plan is to improve life for older people in Manchester, and involves a range of different services, organisations, agencies, and older residents.
There are five parts to the programme of work around the cross-cutting themes of promoting equality, improving relationships and improving engagement.
The programme of work includes actions over the next two years and specifically during 2012 when Manchester City Council is committed to producing another plan for the next three years up to 2015 to match with the Manchester Community Strategy timescales.
The Manchester City Council also commits to holding through its Valuing Older People Team a series of workshops in March 2012 to launch the Manchester Age Friendly City programme. It will run workshops promoting the role of active ageing and solidarity between generations through Intergenerational Practice. International partners are welcome to participate especially as part of developing long term collaborations.
