+ Current Projects
Our working groups are constantly campaigning in the areas of housing, health and social care, transport and equality, but we always have other major projects going on too. These include:
+ Healthy Ageing Research + Older People - Working Together: Collaborating to Inform Policy and Practice
The Network works with Manchester University, specifically the Applied Research Collaboration and the Healthy Ageing Research Group, to help develop innovative research projects that will directly improve patient care and treatment for older people.
+ Old Frame New Picture
The Greater Manchester Older People’s Network Old Frame New Picture Campaign is designed to challenge the negative and stereotyped ways that older people are often represented in the media, as vulnerable or frail, something that has become even more prevalent during the pandemic. This campaign is the result of a long-term project designed and developed by our network members to challenge negative assumptions about and representations of older people.
+ Keeping well this winter
The Greater Manchester Older People’s Network have been part of a collaboration led by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority Ageing Hub to develop the Keeping Well this Winter campaign to support older residents in Greater Manchester with practical information to keep safe and well this winter.
As we continue to live with Covid-19, the campaign resources are designed both to support older people directly and to support and mobilise frontline staff across our services and communities to ‘talk about keeping well this winter’.
