Working with older Mancunians

'Including older people is part of valuing them.' Margaret Parkes, VOP Board.

The Valuing Older People initiative, launched in 2003, was set up to improve the quality of life of Manchester's older residents. The aim is to do this through developing more effective partnerships and by promoting joint working but, most importantly, by ensuring that the programme of work is driven by Manchester's older residents and is based on what is important to them. For this reason, they have developed a range of ways that older Mancunians can get involved.
