Funding success - supporting Healthy Ageing in Place

Woman and man laughing

Oxford Brookes collaborates with Oxford University on the Medical Research Council-funded Person-centered Integrated Care Networks project, led by Prof. Sarah Harper, exploring strategies to delay intensive care transitions in ageing.

Oxford Brookes is a partner in a new University of Oxford led project exploring how moves to more intensive forms of care as people age can be prevented or delayed and how to reduce the impact of those transitions when they do happen. The Person-centered Integrated Care Networks supporting Healthy Ageing in Place project is funded by the Medical Research Council and runs from 2023-25. It brings together researchers from medical statistics, health economics, sociology, anthropology and urban design. They will examine if an existing celebrated model of  place-based community-level support, the Leeds Neighbourhood Network, can be used effectively in other places. The project is led by Professor Sarah Harper at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing with other partners including Sheffield Hallam University and Oxfordshire County Council.
