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

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