Age Friendly Burnage Board
Southway supports the Age Friendly Burnage Board which is a partnership of residents, organisations and service providers working together to make Burnage a better place for older people. We'll support the resident-led board to become self-sustained.
Age Friendly Burnage Action Plan
The Board is working through an action plan to improve services and infrastructure to enable people to live comfortably in Burnage as they age. Since 2017 the Board has had Ambition for Ageing funding to support local projects. 28 have been funded, some were one off events others like the Life and Friendship Group and Spoons and Ladle meet regularly.
We'll continue to work with local older people to deliver the actions identified through the research they contributed to. See www.agefriendlyburnage.co.uk for details of activities or drop in to Westcroft Community Centre on a Tuesday 10-12 to speak to Age Friendly Burnage Board members.
