Towards an Age-friendly Wythenshawe - a partnership approach to developing the Wythenshawe Age-friendly Charter

This Housing LIN case study No 63 is based on a presentation given at the Age-friendly Manchester conference in October last year which saw Manchester gain national and international recognition as a leading age-friendly local authority.

Work to develop the Age-friendly Wythenshawe Charter was led by the two major Housing Providers in Wythenshawe, Parkway Green and Willow Park. It was prompted by the development of their Ageing Strategies and informed by conversations with tenants. It has now seen a wide range of new partners sign up and commit to embracing the principles of age-friendliness.
