This Alternative Age-friendly© Handbook (for the socially engaged urban practitioner) has been produced in partnership with Age UK, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the University of Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing (MICRA) and Age-friendly Manchester (Manchester City Council), the UK’s first Age-friendly City.

The idea for this handbook arose out of a policy seminar (‘The Space between Buildings’) hosted by the UK Urban Ageing Consortium on behalf of the UK Network of Age-friendly Cities in October 2013. Its aim, in brief, is to encourage the ‘socially engaged urban practitioner’ to bring their creative practice to an emerging field of Age-friendly urban action.
