Ambition for Ageing

We work with our local Age UK’s in Oldham and Tameside to deliver the lottery funded program, Ambition for Ageing, in both Oldham and Tameside which aim to reduce social isolation in the over 50’s population in particular wards, through targeted asset based community development (ABCD) approaches.

The Ambition for Ageing project vision is to:

  • connect communities and people through the creation of relationships.
  • help to create places that are age-friendly and that will empower people to live fulfilling lives as they age.
  • embrace the celebration of age, creating the opportunity for people to contribute to the ageing agenda, offering choice and helping them to make more and better connections so that they can live fulfilling lives in their communities.
