In Manchester, three CCGs provided grant funding targeted to reduce social isolation and loneliness amongst Manchester residents aged 50 and over. Grants were awarded to voluntary sector organisations to deliver 27 projects across the city. OPM were commissioned to evaluate the grant programme, in particular to demonstrate outcomes and to provide evidence on what works and why it works.
