Age Friendly Places in Practice online workshops


In May 2021 and September 2021 we delivered two rounds of online practice based-workshops for anyone working to make neighbourhoods more age-friendly on three topics:


  • Meeting the Challenge of Taking an Equalities Approach to Place-Based Work
  • The Value of Shared Spaces in Place-Based Working
  • Co-production in Sustaining Age-Friendly Places


Each workshop focussed on a specific area of learning from Ambition for Ageing. Over the last six years, the programme has developed an evidence base on communities, ageing, equalities and co-production, and we wanted to share this learning and provide an opportunity to apply it in practice.


The workshops were designed for anyone working to make neighbourhoods more age-friendly, including project managers, community development workers, and neighbourhood volunteers.


Each workshop included practical examples, a guest presentation, an opportunity to share ideas with other practitioners and space to reflect on applying the learning to where you work.
