Improving the lives of excluded older people latest working group activity

As a Working Group we have produced in collaboration a document that identifies the causes of exclusion that are carried into later life, and those that come into effect primarily because of age – to be promoted within the Alliance as a means of understanding exclusion and in order to identify work that alliance members might consider.

We have also enabled a sharing of information between group members, in particular the RNIB and Alzheimer’s Society with the Association of Chief Police Officers; and Action on Hearing Loss and SENSE with the National Development Team for Inclusion; Stonewall and Independent Age with all group members.

More recently we have started to map First Contact-type schemes across the country in order to provide a comprehensive guide to what is available, with a view to examining the various models in use to provide learning material for areas to make use of when considering setting up a new scheme.
