Healthy ageing and care


About us

Demographic trends in global ageing are changing rapidly. 

In 2018, for the first time in history, people aged 65 years or above outnumbered children aged under five. There are huge opportunities and challenges which, as a society, we are only just beginning to understand and explore. 

Our researchers are working across disciplines and with our partners from communities, business and the public sector. 

Our work includes: addressing health and social care ageing issues, designing appropriate living and working spaces, developing policies to accommodate an ageing workforce, and exploring changes in the arts and culture.
