British Society of Gerontology

British Society of Gerontology (BSG) was established in 1971. It provides a multidisciplinary forum for researchers and other individuals interested in the situations of older people, and in how knowledge about ageing and later life can be enhanced and improved. Until 1979, the Society was known as the British Society of Social and Behavioural Gerontology. BSG is a registered charitable company (charity number:264385) and is the professional organisation representing gerontologists in Britain.

BSG supports capacity building in the gerontological community.  Our vibrant group of Emerging Researchers in Ageing (ERA) facilitates an active community of students, postdoctoral researchers and those established in careers but new to the field of ageing studies.  With the support of the Society, they meet regularly to discuss research, policy and practice, attend ERA events and seminars, organise relevant training and mentoring, and support one another in their careers.
