What is the partnership, and why should I get involved?
The Age Friendly Hulme & Moss Side Partnership is a resident-led group whose aim is to make the area a better place to grow older. The Partnership is made up of individual residents, organisations and stakeholders. The Partnership will be working with the Manchester Age-Friendly Neighbourhood Team to discover what it is like to live there, and create an Action Plan for how to make the neighbourhood more ‘age-friendly’.
The Partnership has a resident-led board which is made up or individual residents and organisations. The board is responsible for the creation of an Action Plan, discussing and developing projects and making decisions about the funding. The Partnership will support residents who want to make the action plan a reality, and provide seed funding for people or local groups who want to take ideas forward.
