Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation

Ambition for Ageing Scaled Programme Information Event for Potential Bidders

 We are looking for providers to deliver two Scaled Programmes with a focus on community media:

1) Subculture

We are looking for providers who can work with people over 50 across Greater Manchester to create media projects that explore particular interests, experiences or ideas that do not necessarily have a broad appeal for all people over 50 but which meets the interests of a particular audience.

2) Greater Manchester through the Eyes of Older People

We would like a partnership of organisations to run a 12 month campaign using a range of media that enables people over 50 to tell us how they are working to reduce social isolation and the changes they are making to the places they live in.

This event is for organisations interested in bidding for this work. It will provide an opportunity to find out more information and ask questions.
