This document is a summary of the final evaluation report of Hact's Older People's Programme that funded 19 projects, 17 of which achieved their targets. It includes insights about specific policy areas, lessons for programme funders, government and local authorities in providing for marginalised groups of older people.
The projects worked with, as well as for the benefit of, older people, and listened closely to their views. All worked in partnership with other organisations, including housing associations, social services, health authorities, local authorities and representative bodies.
Additional information about each of the policy areas is contained in a series of insight documents, which are available from hact. The full evaluation document produced by Moyra Riseborough is available in electronic format on the HACT website (opens new window).
