+ 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:

+ This is What an Activist Looks Like campaign

 

+ Healthy Ageing Research + Older People - Working Together: Collaborating to Inform Policy and Practice

+ Old Frame New Picture campaign

 

+ This is What an Activist Looks Like

International Day of Older Persons was on 1st October and to celebrate, the GMOPN teamed up with Talking about My Generation to launch a new campaign called This is What an Activist Looks Like. The campaign featured older and younger activists in their communities and showed how generations are working together to tackle climate change.

 

+ 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.
