Tine Buffel and Sophie Yarker publish paper on Involving Socially Excluded Groups in Age-Friendly Programs
On 22nd March 2022, the Journal of Aging & Social Policy published (open access) the article ‘Involving Socially Excluded Groups in Age-Friendly Programs: The Role of a Spatial Lens and Co-Production Approaches’.
Authored by MICRA/MUARG researchers Tine Buffel and Sophie Yarker, the paper examines the Ambition for Aging program in Greater Manchester, UK, which implemented a range of projects designed to tackle social isolation in later life. The paper argues that due to its co-production approach and spatial lens, Ambition for Aging was able to involve sections of the older population that otherwise might have remained excluded.
