How do older people help each other out within their communities?

Lovely ethnography project for the Centre for Ageing Better (CfAB) with research agency Traverse: visiting people aged over 50 around the country, to map out ‘informal voluntary contributions in the community’.
This is a 1-minute compilation snapshot, based on four ethnographic case studies, looking at the experiences and motivations of Gunwati in Leeds, Kathleen in Settle, Billy in Scarborough, and Tina in Bristol.
The overall aim of the research has been to recommend ways in which national/local government, the voluntary sector, and business, can help people in later life find meaningful ways to contribute to their communities.
