At Rusty Road 2 Recovery we have been involved with the Transform Ageing programme. This initiative aims to improve people’s experience of ageing. It also ties in well with our aims of recovery based work for people of all ages, working with older people to tackle feelings of loneliness and isolation. We’ve been involved in this video from Transform Ageing.
As a society, we are getting older. The Office for National Statistics believes that by 2020 people aged over 50 will make up almost one third of the workforce and nearly half of the adult population. This hasn’t happened before and we need to prepare for the impact of this on ourselves and society.
