BAME Ageing in the Community Conference
Ambition for Ageing (AfA) and the Zebra Partnership are excited to invite you to an event on understanding what ageing in place means for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.
This is a nation-wide event for commissioners and funders. AfA, which works closely with MICRA, wants to draw attention to the importance of social connection and infrastructure in preventing the social isolation of older people from BAME communities.
AfA will be launching their new report, Ageing in Place for Minority Ethnic communities: the importance of social infrastructure, which explores how individuals from BAME communities use places, organisations and services for social contact and interaction.
This event will be delivered on behalf of the Ageing Better programme which is a programme set up by The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK.
Workshops will draw from learning and case studies from Ageing Better partnerships across England.
The event will share key recommendations from the report and consider where we go next in a session led by our keynote speaker Patrick Vernon OBE, the Centre for Ageing Better.
The online event takes place on Tuesday 25th August, 1pm – 3.30pm
