+ 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.
