The Lord Mayor, Councillor Susan Cooley has designated ‘Age Friendly Manchester’ as one of the focuses of the We Love MCR Charity during her year of office and invites funding applications from groups and organisations that support this theme.
Age-friendly Manchester is about improving the quality of life for older people in the city and the Age-Friendly Manchester Team works with a range of older people, groups and organisations to do this.
Examples of their work include: …
•Helping make neighbourhoods better places for older people.
•Helping the Council listen to and involve older people in decision making and helping to improve services for them.
•Supporting the Cultural Champions programme, the Older Peoples Forum and age-friendly networks.
We Love MCR will also be supporting the following project themes for 2015:
The objective will be to find new and current Manchester projects and give them increased exposure, alongside multi platforms to help raise the funds needed to accomplish their goals.
Funding applications that support all of these themes, as well as all other projects looking for funding in Manchester, are invited.
