Ageing in Place for Minority Ethnic communities.

Our new research report explores the types of social infrastructure that people aged 50 and over from ethnic minority communities use in specific places.


The aim of the report is to understand how organisations working with ethnic minority groups engage with older members from their community and how this might have changed over time and to explore how individuals from ethnic minority communities use places, organisations and services for social contact and interaction.


This report is a meta-analysis of five research reports that took place in five neighbourhoods across England; Birmingham, Camden, Hackney, Leicester and Manchester. The project is a part of Ageing Better which is a National Lottery Community Fund programme which funds fourteen partnerships across the UK, one of which is Ambition for Ageing.


The report was launched at an event on 25th August which explored how minority ethnic communities age in a place. The recording of the event, including the workshops, is now available online in a handy YouTube playlist so you can watch back some or all of the event. You can find it here.
