What's it actually like to live in a city centre, over 60?
The number of people over the age of 60 is set to double by the year 2050.
But is the UK ready for an increasingly ageing population? Are resources and services such as housing stock and healthcare leaving us with age-proofed towns and cities?
In Greater Manchester - the UK's first "age-friendly" city (as recognised by the World Health Organisation) - more than £1 million pounds of funding has been made available to encourage older people to be more physically and socially active.
An "Age-friendly strategy" looks to establish more cross generational volunteering projects, building a health and social care system that works for older people, and make sure the transport network is suited to a changing demographic.
