Age Friendly Chorlton & Whalley Range
Here at buzz Manchester the work of our Neighbourhood Health Workers includes a focus on championing age friendly activities, linking in with other local services, and supporting older residents to ensure they can age well within their local communities.
It's important to us that older residents from a wide range of backgrounds have meaningful opportunities to share their views and take a leading role in where they live, generating ideas for new projects which aim to improve health and wellbeing in later life.
There are so many activities going on across Manchester, one of our Neighbourhood Health Workers Laura has put together a brochure of activities suitable for over 50s in the Chorlton and Whalley Range neighbourhoods, including social activities, exercise classes, local support services, IT support, gardening and much more!
Across Chorlton and Whaley Range there is so much going on at Chorlton Good Neighbours and JNR8 Community Centre, as well as Chorlton Library, The Carlton Club and lots of other great venues.
Did you know that there is a weekly Walking Basketball session at Whalley Range Sports Centre? Or Group Bike Rides with the Bike Hive in Alexandra Park? There's Drama Groups, Art Sessions, Zumba, Tai Chi and many more! If you know of anything happening that is not listed in the brochure below and you’d like it to be added then please email Laura.Cassidy@gmmh.nhs.uk to make sure it is included. Also, if there’s an activity or group that doesn't currently exist that you'd like to get into, get in touch with Laura and she'll see if she can work with you to get it set up!
