Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing

In a unique project where older people were trained as co-researchers to look into the ‘age-friendliness’ of cities, sociologists from The University of Manchester have found social inclusion to be the secret to ageing well – while age-friendly transport and housing make them feel more a part of the urban neighbourhoods they live in.
