Helping you to build vibrant local communities

Ambition for Ageing seminar - Manchester Cares: How We Reduce Loneliness for Older and Younger People Alike in Our Changing City

This is the third seminar in the Spring/Summer series of MICRA seminars delivered as part of the Ambition for Ageing programme.

Manchester Cares is a new community network of young professionals and older neighbours hanging out and helping one another in our rapidly changing city.

We do this because, whilst Manchester is one of the most exciting places in the world – full of cultural and economic opportunities – it can also feel anonymous, lonely and isolating for some people.

Manchester Cares' vision is to bring the parallel worlds of older people and young professionals together to reduce loneliness and isolation, improve wellbeing, skills, connection and power, and bridge the gaps across social, generational and attitudinal divides.

Manchester Cares is opening in 2017. Join us at this seminar where founder Alex Smith will talk to us about the model and why it's important to bring older and younger people together to strengthen rapidly changing communities.
