Manchester is a City for Life

Manchester’s new age-friendly strategy, “Manchester: A City for Life 2023-2028”, was launched today. The strategy has been developed in collaboration with the Age Friendly Manchester (AFM) Older People’s Board, the Age Friendly Assembly, and key strategic partners, services, and frontline workers. The strategy is fully aligned with the Making Manchester Fairer Action Plan and Anti-Poverty Strategy (2022-2027).
The new strategy builds on previous progress and looks to a vision for Manchester over the next five years. It proposes a series of immediate and preventative responses to address the ongoing impact of the pandemic and the ensuing cost-of-living crisis on the over 50s. The strategy outlines a series of priorities and commitments to drive better outcomes so that more people can age well in place with increased financial security. Let’s work together to make Manchester a city where everyone can thrive!
