UK Urban Ageing Consortium

Posted in: News on July 10, 2012

The UK Urban Ageing Consortium is a collaborative partnership between Keele University, Manchester City Council and the Beth Johnson Foundation that actively supports the development of age-friendly environments. Building on the combined expertise of its partners, the Consortium develops and shares learning around ‘age-friendly’ cities, advancing the practice and debate on urban ageing.A growing number of cities are using age-friendly approaches to respond to the twin trends of demographic ageing and urbanization. The Consortium is taking a national lead on these developments: providing a strong research base for developing understanding around age-friendly concepts and testing out different age-friendly approaches on the ground.Read more about the aims of the Consortium by downloading the PDF below and a leaflet is also available below for your information.
