Greater Manchester (GM) is an international leader in ageing. As the UK’s first age-friendly city region, it is at the forefront of global efforts to adapt to demographic change and population ageing. GM’s new Local Industrial Strategy makes clear its ambition to capitalise on the economic opportunities of ageing and promote healthy and active ageing for all.

This report sets out the findings of research by the International Longevity Centre UK (ILC), in partnership with the Greater Manchester Ageing Hub at the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), into the nature of these opportunities and how GM’s innovation infrastructure and other key stakeholders can best respond to them.
