Community Contributions Amongst Older People / Centre for Ageing Better
The Centre for Ageing better wanted to map out the ‘community contributions’ of older people in the UK, with a particular focus on ‘informal volunteering’ amongst those from ethnic minority backgrounds and lower socio-economic areas. As such, we travelled the country, to find out: how and why do people contribute to their communities; what barriers, if any, do they face; and how could they be better supported? The case study above features Tina, from Bristol, with her partner Fred. You can see all four of our ethnographic case studies for this project, along with a 1-min compilation snippet, here.
