Age Allies Programme Design (Older Peoples Focus Groups 28/03/17)
Tue 28 March 2017, 10:30 – 12:00 BST
From buses to banking, housing to health care, or leisure activities to local authorities, older people are increasingly shown to experience ageist attitudes and behaviors when accessing various services.
Age Allies is a brand new 3 years programme being developed by Age UK London that will help tackle age discrimination and issues around access to services in London. Funded by the City Bridge Trust, it will develop and deliver a series of workshops within various public organisations (such as Councils and NHS organisations) and private sector companies who then pledge to make improvements to service delivery and staff attitudes towards older users. Participants will then cascade and promote the Age Allies agenda within their organisations.
We are holding a series of focus groups and need YOUR valuable insight and involvement.
Can you spare a couple of hours to help us design the programme to make it as successful as possible and maximise its impact. We want to hear the views of older people on the current attitudes/behaviour towards when accessing various services in London and what improvements could be made?
Registering your interest today for one of our Focus Groups on either:
Tuesday 28 March (10:30 - 12:00)
Wednesday 29 March (10:30 - 12:00)
Help us challenge ageism in London.
