Changing the Record on growing older in Greater Manchester

With support of the Yellow Jigsaw team and their vast experience of working in and with the media, the community reporters create news stories, videos and podcasts every month covering news, views and nostalgia from across Greater Manchester – all while challenging ageist stereotypes and championing the belief that we can, and should, all expect to age positively.

Do you work with older people? Could more be done to ensure they have a voice and platform to influence policy and change? If so, why not work with the MyGen team to build their confidence and skills through Community Reporter Training.

Award Winning Volunteers

The community reporters have been awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
