The Pride in Ageing Advisory Group brings together a group of representatives from different backgrounds aged over 50 from LGBTQ+ communities in Greater Manchester. The group undertakes co-production and design of the programme as well as helps to assess the success of the programme with guidance from the Pride in Ageing Manager.
The group currently meets once a month and receives weekly email updates about programme involvement and activity. Meetings include presentations and discussions around matters related to programme activity and updates from members of the group. Members are also invited to special events run by the programme and LGBT Foundation. The group currently meets in a hybrid format – with members joining online via the Zoom video conferencing application and in person at LGBT Foundation’s Community Hub in Central Manchester.
