All FM 96.9
We train those at risk of isolation in our communities in radio production and live broadcast. All training culminates with a live show. After training we offer the participants the opportunity to become a volunteer presenter and/or producer on ALL FM 96.9.
Our ethos is "By the community, for the community"
Age-Friendly Manchester is a partnership involving organisations, groups and individuals across the city playing their part in making Manchester a great place to grow older.
The Bread & Butter Thing
We target communities who are really struggling to afford the everyday basics. We know from our conversations with them, that they regularly skip meals and rarely have the luxury of household goods without having to make some tough choices. To reach our members, we develop partnerships with local community organisations that are in a position to recommend the services of TBBT and recruit members.
Campaign to end loneliness
The Campaign to End Loneliness believe that people of all ages need connections that matter.
We’ve been experts in the field of loneliness and connection since 2011. We share research, evidence and knowledge with thousands of other organisations and the public to make a difference to older people’s lives.
We inspire everyone to connect and bring communities together across the UK.
Centre for Ageing Better
At the Centre for Ageing Better we want everyone to enjoy later life. We create change in policy and practice informed by evidence and work with partners across England to improve employment, housing, health and communities.
Gorton Visual Arts
Gorton Visual Arts has been creating artwork in and around Gorton and Manchester since 2006. We meet once a week at the Aviary Community Rooms in Debdale Park. The group is made up of 18 local residents and Lead Artist Ian McKay.
By involving elderly residents, vulnerable adults and residents with learning difficulties, in a safe studio environment new skills are learnt and shared.
Greater Manchester Older Peoples Network
The Greater Manchester Older People’s Network (GMOPN) was established in October 2015 following a consultation with older people in Greater Manchester. The development of the GMOPN is supported by the Ambition for Ageing (AfA) programme and facilitated by Macc. The aim of the GMOPN is to inform and influence Greater Manchester strategies that affect older people.
Levenshulme Good Neighbours
Levenshulme Good Neighbours is a local charity that helps older people to lead independent and fulfilling lives as active members of their community.
We do this by recruiting volunteer befrienders from the local community who support older people in a wide range of social, emotional and practical ways.
