Being Age Friendly Training

Being Age Friendly Training

Being Age Friendly training explores why being age friendly should be everyone’s business. The training has been designed using the expertise of our Age Friendly Neighbourhood Health Workers, Knowledge Service, World Health Organisation, Age Friendly Manchester, and older residents themselves.

Our Age Friendly Team would like to invite you to join them for one of their upcoming training sessions on: 16th June 10am - 1pm or 8th July 12:30 - 3:30pm at The Curve, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust Headquarters site in Prestwich.

This training is targeted at groups and organisations who are looking to develop new ways of working to improve access for older residents within communities.

The aim of the training is to challenge stigmas around ageing, improve knowledge around the World Health Organisation's recommendations when building age friendly communities, and encourage attendees to think about their own inclusive practice and improvements that could be made for older people accessing their group/service.

The training is interactive and helps learners build on their knowledge whilst participating in fun and educational activities. The sessions also highlight actions that are being taken regionally in Manchester, and nationally across the country, to create age friendly services, age friendly neighbourhoods, and steps being taken to bring about age equality.
