As an independent partnership of organisations, we work together across a range of themes to take a collaborative approach to the challenges of an ageing society and promote opportunities and contribution by older people themselves.

Themes

Creative Arts and Older People

“The Creative Arts group is a vibrant group of representatives from national to grassroots organisations across a wide range of arts activities. We are brought together by a shared passion for excellent practice and interest in the role of creativity in wellbeing. The variety of voices is crucial for new and innovative ideas to emerge.”  […]

Digital Participation

The Digital Inclusion Group was formed from over thirty members representing a wide range of organisations, public and private, working in some way with older people and digital technology. The group is planning to relaunch shortly as the Digital Participation Group (DPG). The DPG aims to establish varied ways of meeting the ICT learning support […]

Healthy Workplaces

The ‘Healthy Workplaces’ Group helps employers to improve the health and productivity of their ageing workforces.

The Group intends that its work […]

Transport

The Members of the Transport Working Group have knowledge about various aspects of the transport system. The objective of the group is to assemble, collate and disseminate information about ways of improving accessibility for older people and to ensure that the views of older people are included in decisions about travel that affect them.

Valuing Older People’s Contribution

Older people have lots to offer their communities and the economy but our culture and workplaces often overlook this potential.  Our group works together to understand and create opportunities for older people from all backgrounds to contribute in flexible ways which fit their needs for meaningful work and their needs for payment.
