Ambition for Ageing launch new report
Ambition for Ageing's new report, ‘Building Age-Friendly Neighbourhoods in Greater Manchester’, draws on research and learning gathered from over 3,000 participants of the AfA programme to provide insight into what older people across GM think makes a neighbourhood age-friendly. As a practitioner, we would like to draw your attention in particular to our briefing How We Build Age-Friendly Neighbourhoods and we would be grateful if you could circulate this information around your networks.
