Ageing Well: Can disruptive innovation help people to age better?

People that provide services for older people are faced with more challenges than ever before: from the type of services older people need, to the way they are accessed – and by whom. With public and private systems running alongside one another, how can we ensure equality of access? This webinar explores the changing landscape of care provision and how businesses and care providers are adapting. We will look at the challenges this presents to commissioners what is needed to support older people to get the services that work best for them Speakers:

This project is funded by the University of Sussex and the Economic and Social Research Council to help translate academic knowledge into action. The activity is facilitated by always possible, a unique consultancy looking at 21st century problem-solving through connected conversation.

The Ageing Well project brings together a host of activities, research and content and as part of this we have set up a community content hub via a peer networking platform called The Possibility Club.

Sign up to the Ageing Well: Changing the Conversation ‘circle’ to join a community of people and organisations interested in discussing, debating and disrupting how we ‘age well’. It’s a place to share ideas, build collaboration and move towards changing the conversation around how we age.

These free online discussions give you permission to disrupt the way we think about – and do – ageing well.

Bringing together cutting-edge research, business innovation, grassroots practice in the community and individual lived experience – we’re pooling our knowledge to see what the future might look like.

If you are open to sharing ideas and building collaborations about living old and living well, digital lives, health, wellbeing and generational learning – then we’d love you to join a new community of thought.
