Guy from Positive Ageing Associates jointly headed up the English Ageing Well programme for the whole two years of its duration. The programme was designed to support local authorities to prepare for an ageing society. It performed extremely well and exceeded all its targets. The independent evaluation noted that the programme was ambitious and successful, despite having been delivered against a very challenging resource backdrop – “Generally there was great positivity towards Ageing Well … most felt that it had made a genuine difference in any one of a number of areas, from helping councils engage with partners to helping them network with other authorities and share and receive best practice and support.”
Guy was particularly involved in the writing and/or development of the following materials:-
– Combating Loneliness: a guide for local authorities Click here.
– Developing Dementia Friendly Communities: learning and guidance for local authorities Click here.
– Ageing Well: a whole system approach – a guide to place based working Click here.
– Better places to grow old: Learning from the Ageing Well programme Click here. This is an animation which tries to illustrate what life would be like for three fictional older people if some of the main themes from the ageing well programme were put into practice.
