About:

This expert briefing marks the launch of a new report, ‘The Golden Generation? Wellbeing and inequalities in later life’, which presents research findings and policy recommendations from the 5-year ‘Frailty, Resilience and Inequality in Later Life’ programme, led by Professor James Nazroo.

With input from Professor Martin Vernon, National Clinical Director for Older People Paul McGarry, Head of the GM Ageing Hub and Claire Turner, Centre for Ageing Better, this event will be an opportunity to discuss the outcomes of the report and links to policy.

Background:

This programme of research has been specifically concerned with providing an integrated understanding of processes that lead to both positive and negative outcomes in later life, and how these outcomes are shaped by inequalities.

It has considered factors operating at particular points of the life-course – be they genetic, metabolic, psychological or social – and how these are framed by socioeconomic inequalities.

Audience:

This briefing is aimed at policymakers, commissioners and providers of services to older people and those in mid-life including local government, NHS and the Third Sector.
