Manchester Ageing Study
This is an exciting new research project aimed at improving the age-friendliness of the city of Manchester . The project will be built around the participation and involvement of older people, working in a number of neighbourhoods within the city. The main aims of the project will be to first, explore older people’s experiences of social exclusion and inclusion in their neighbourhoods; second, to improve our understanding of the opportunities for older people for engagement and the desire to be engaged; and, third, to inform age-friendly policies and practices.
An important feature of this work will be the involvement of older people, not only as research participants, but also as experts and actors in all stages of the project.
