Age-friendly Manchester Cultural Offer


Over the last four years, we have been working with The Audience Agency and Cultural providers in the city to make sure Manchester ’s cultural offer is available to all older people in the city.  This has involved taking a lens to the cultural offer and exploring how it can be made more accessible to older people. This includes the most social excluded older people.  This work has been recognised as being ground breaking and in particular the Cultural Champions network of over 100 older people is a model of best practice.  To get involved or to find out more about work that has happened contact Sally Chandler on or Sherry DeWynter on
