Join us for the second webinar in a new series examining and driving policy and practice for healthy ageing.
People who help out in their community – from everyday acts of neighbourliness to more formal volunteering roles – tend to be happier and to develop a better quality and quantity of relationships and sense of purpose in their lives. Those who are less well off or have health concerns are much less likely to be able to contribute their time and talents, especially through formal volunteering.
In this webinar we’ll explore the insights gathered on community contributions during the COVID-19 pandemic, what it means to have age-friendly and inclusive volunteering, and whole-system approaches to community-centred public health.
