Halal Incorp Wrap Up Research Project Working With Targeted Community
Ambition for Ageing is a £10.2 million Greater Manchester (GM) level programme aimed at creating more age-friendly places and empowering people to live fulfilling lives as they age. It is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund’s Ageing Better programme, which aims to reduce social isolation of older people.
The delivery phase of the programme focused on work in 25 neighbourhoods across GM alongside larger, scaled projects delivering work across Greater Manchester tackling thematic issues, such as the development of social eating activities.
Led by GMCVO, 46 partner organisations worked to support hundreds of community groups and over 21,000 citizens to actively design and deliver local projects which change the places we live and age in.
During mainly the summer months of 2019 the Halal Incorp team delivered a small contract around ageing, working with a targeted community. Halal Incorp worked with Muslim men aged 50 and above in central Rochdale, Greater Manchester, UK.
Halal Incorp Wrap Up Commissioned Research Project
The project was delivered successfully to a high standard. Community research was undertaken and community members were engaged through three different data collection methods.
There were a range of data collection methods used in the field research. This community research project used an ethnographic framework and qualitative data collection approaches. Walking interviews were undertaken, focus groups as well as surveys.
Research was collected in faith institutions, in people’s homes, on the street, outside supermarkets and in places such as laundrettes. The data obtained was analysed and recommendations were made which feature in the associated report.
In December 2019, a community evaluation and celebration event took place including many of the people that took part in the research. The event featured a short speech from the local MP RT. Hon Tony Lloyd & a presentation delivered by Majid Hussain the Director of Halal Incorp.
