Improving employment support for over 50s in Greater Manchester
Partnering with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and DWP, this project looks at developing effective approaches to providing employment support for over 50s.
The Centre for Ageing Better, Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) are partners in a project to increase the numbers of people aged between 50 and State Pension age (SPa) in work.
We commissioned Humanly (an award-winning design studio specialising in human-centred design for social impact) to develop more effective approaches to providing employment support for over 50s as part of the project.
The team conducted activities with:
- 90 people aged over 50 with lived experience of being involuntarily out of work
- Service providers, voluntary and community sector organisations, commissioners and employers
- Experts in labour markets, economics, procurement and coaching for people aged over 50
