Manchester Urban Ageing Research Group

The Manchester Urban Ageing Research Group (MUARG) brings together researchers from a wide variety of disciplinary backgrounds. We are committed to working with national, regional and local government, third-sector organisations, NGOs, and older people, to promote 'age-friendly' urban environments.

Our researchers work on a range of themes which connect ageing societies with various dimensions of urban change, including:

  • inequalities facing older people living in areas of multiple deprivations;
  • developing new approaches to urban planning and design;
  • working with older people as co-producers of knowledge about urban environments;
  • understanding the influence of home and neighbourhood on the lives of older people.
