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

Lovely project for the Centre for Ageing Better (CfAB). We visited people aged over 50 around the country, to map out ‘informal voluntary contributions in the community’.
The above video is a 1-minute compilation snapshot, based on four ethnographic case studies. We explored the experiences and motivations of Gunwati in Leeds, Kathleen in Settle, Billy in Scarborough, and Tina in Bristol.
The overall aim of the research, for which Traverse published the written reports, was 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.
You can see each of the four individual case studies here.
