+ Our Reports
The Greater Manchester Older People's Network holds quarterly events based on themes decided upon by our network members. After each event that we hold, we bring together a report outlining the network's key concerns and priorities and then make recommendations based on these. Here you will find all of the reports and recommendations that we have published so far.

This report is based on the findings from the development survey we conducted in 2019 to enable us to find out priorities for older people in Greater Manchester. The findings from the survey will be used to guide our development going forward.
+ Championing the Voices of Older People in Greater Manchester: A Guide to Participation
This Guide to Participation is a report based on the findings of the GMOPN events held in Leigh and central Manchester, in May 2019. The report reflects wide-ranging discussions and makes recommendations to ensure good participation for older people in relation to attitude, process and practicalities. Our report and recommendations will be used to inform future participation opportunities delivered by the GMOPN and shared with organisations working with or wanting to engage with older people to ensure that people are engaged with on their own terms and in a meaningful way.
+ Insights and Recommendations Booklet
Our Insights and Recommendations Booklet brings together all of the recommendations that we’ve developed through our events and reports, reflecting the views and priorities of older people in Greater Manchester.
We will continue to add to the document as we hold more events and produce new reports and recommendations.
