Concurrent with tighter new rules for Greater Manchester announced last Thursday, Ambition for Ageing have released a new report to help build more effective social connection projects for older people during the new operating environment of COVID-19.
GM GOLD (Growing Older with Learning Disabilities) was an inclusive research project carried out by a team of older people with learning disabilities.
Ambition for Ageing wanted to find out what older people with learning disabilities think about their local area, whether they feel part of their local community and what support or barriers exist to meaningful social contacts, interactions and activities.
The State of the Sector survey is back and we need your help!
A new report from the Centre for Ageing Better looks at the needs of those with caring responsibilities trying to seek employment and how they can be supported back into work. The report is based on learning from Ambition for Ageing project, Working Potential.
Ambition for Ageing have launched two new documents outlining an approach to engaging marginalised older people using a spatial model developed during their five years of age-friendly research. The new model considers the size and geographical distribution of different communities as a way of engaging them in group activities.
GMCVO are working with the GM Ageing Hub to identify what the issues are for older people around financial security. GMCVO are looking for reports, minutes or notes from conversations with older people, informal feedback or suggestions from your experiences. This could be something you have worked on yourself, or just information you are aware of.
If you have any information as to what these issues are email these to: firstname.lastname@example.org before Tuesday 30 June 2020.
