Ambition for Ageing

Ambition for Ageing is a £10million Big Lottery funded project across Greater Manchester which targets the reduction of social isolation among older people. Projects will be delivered in eight of the Greater Manchester districts, with the Manchester project run by a multi-disciplinary team from the Manchester School of Architecture at Manchester Metropolitan University and Southway Housing Trust.

Called Manchester Age-Friendly Neighbourhoods (MAFN), the Manchester project will develop three resident-led Age Friendly Neighbourhood Partnerships - in Moston, Burnage and Hulme & Moss side. These partnerships will co-research, develop, implement and evaluate projects designed with and by local older people to reduce the social isolation of local older people by increasing the ‘Age-Friendliness’ of the Neighbourhood.

Over £320,000 will be available to spend on community-led projects over the next four years, supported by the project team and a range of substantial contributions in kind from partners. The projects will be officially launched and begin work in the New Year.
