Ageing Well in Place in Hulme is an exciting and innovative partnership that was catalysed by tenants living at Hopton Court tower block in Hulme, working together with On Top of the World Project, CLASS, One Manchester housing association, and academics at the University of Manchester and Manchester School of Architecture. Tenants are now organised as Aquarius Savers which brings together representatives from across four tower blocks to take forward a Naturally Occurring Retirement Community Model (NORC) for enabling older people to age well in the place they call home without having to relocate in later life.

Women of Wythenshawe (WoW)

Know Africa preparing their issues for the first WoW Network meeting, February 2023

Women of Wythenshawe is a women-led poverty action network comprising 12 local women’s groups based in the Wythenshawe area and supported by a diversity of support agencies within the local women’s sector.

WoW members have committed to working together for an initial three year period across diverse experiences on the grounds of what they hold in common: the experience of being women facing multiple disadvantage in the Wythenshawe area. They aim to take action on gendered poverty that will contribute to systemic change. WoW is one of only three place-based networks funded through the SmallWood Trust’s Women’s Sector Resilience Fund 2 together with Birmingham No Recourse to Public Funds network and Coventry Women’s Partnership.
