Getting Older - A New Experience

This report by the West Midlands Later Life Forum examines the impact of ageing on the individual and on the economic & social functioning of society.

It found that public policy has a tendency to treat older people as an isolated phenomenon, which results in unintended and disadvantageous consequences throughout society.

However, it highlights that understanding the contributions that older people can and do make, has the potential to create a virtuous circle, which would benefit the wider community.
