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.
