What is Ambition for Ageing?

Salford has a local population of over 12,500 residents and a significantly ageing population with nearly 4000 older people. 

The AFA project aims to enable communities to become more ‘Age Friendly'. Where ageing is not a barrier to living well and where the environment, activities and services support and enable people of all ages to live an active and healthy life and stay connected to friends and those they love.

Age UK Salford is working in partnership with Inspiring Communities TogetherSalford Communities Voluntary ServicesSalford Together and New Economy.
