|The Healthy Ageing Research Group at the University of Lincoln and TED in East Lindsey with East Lindsey District Council held an online learning event on Thursday 2 December focussing on Ageing Without Children in East Lindsey.
During the event we heard from a number of speakers: Jane Adams (TED in East Lindsey Programme Manager), Cllr William Gray (Better Ageing Portfolio Holder for East Lindsey District Council) and Trish Faulks (Founder, East Lindsey AWOC Group). Presentations highlighted a mix of lived experience, service provider perspectives and policy commitment to healthier, happier, ageing.
The keynote presentation, delivered by Professor Mo Ray of the Healthy Ageing Research Group at the University of Lincoln, discussed findings from research conducted over the summer on the experiences of Ageing Without Children in East Lindsey. The event launched findings from the briefing report on Ageing Without Children in rural and coastal communities – thought to be the first study of its kind.
