About Wythenshawe Good Neighbours (WGN)

We are Wythenshawe Good Neighbours (WGN) and our work is embedded in the Age Friendly Manchester Strategy. We have a range of ways in which we help older people connect to their community, be it through the social eating programme in our local venues, trips out or befriending visits, in the homes of the older people we support.

Eating in company is very much a theme for WGN and we mix and match elements to suit the partners working with us, venue size and the target group. So, a coffee morning may easily transform into an ideas swap or a show and tell or to reminisce. A lunch may become a health screening opportunity or a physical activity before we sit down to eat.  A breakfast may be a way of collecting ideas, supporting research and sharing opinions about how to learn a new skill, to share or appreciate that skill to benefit each other and the wider community. 

In short, WGN are there when you need us, we listen when you want to voice your opinion, we act on what you tell us and we use our AFM platforms so that others hear your ideas and we are always positive about ageing.
