In collaboration with Public Health England, we are running a series of webinars that explores each of the Statement’s five principles, the implications of the COVID pandemic, the key issues and lessons learned, followed by presentations from organisations that have implemented actions to address healthy ageing. Members of the UK Network of Age-friendly Communities will add local perspectives to the discussions.
To date we have over 100 organisations signed up to the Statement’s five principles, which are:
1. Putting prevention first and ensuring timely access to services and support when needed
2. Removing barriers and creating more opportunities for older adults to contribute to society
3. Ensuring good homes and communities
4. Narrowing inequalities
5. Challenging ageist and negative language, culture and practices
This webinar will focus on health and work.
