Centre for Ageing Better
8 Jul 2019
The Centre for Ageing Better has a strategic partnership with GMCA, working to coordinate a strategic response to the opportunities and challenges of an ageing population, especially in employment, housing and transport.
“It’s great to see GMCA publish a Local Industrial Strategy which seizes the opportunity of an ageing population as set out in the Ageing Society Grand Challenge. This should be a top priority for all local authorities.
“We know from our partnership with GMCA and as part of the Greater Manchester Ageing Hub how much ground-breaking work is being done there, from reducing worklessness amongst over 50s to enabling innovation to promote healthy ageing.
“The rapid shift in the age profile of the population requires an urgent response. A partnership between local leaders and national government – as well as businesses and the voluntary sector – is the best way to capitalise on this opportunity.”
