‘Transforming later lives: Taking a localities approach’ report published

The Centre for Ageing Better has recently published the report ‘Transforming later lives: Taking a localities approach’.The Centre for Ageing Better is a charitable foundation funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.

Their report sets out the Centre for Ageing Better’s 10-year localities strategy and their place-based approach to improving later lives.

It looks at why they work in localities and how they aim to achieve and measure success.

By 2040, over 40% of the UK population will be aged 50 or over. However, they are not ageing evenly everywhere. Already, one in three local authorities have populations with this age profile.

With each locality having its own distinct assets and challenges. The Centre for Ageing Better believes that these factors must be taken into account in order to generate solutions that are more likely to be appropriate, locally owned and sustainable.

With this strategy, the Centre forAgeing Better aims to deepen its impact with Strategic Locality Partnerships, grow the UK Network of Age-friendly Communities and build wider motivation and capability for change around the country.
