About the Event

Ageing Better partners identified a number of barriers that stopped older people engaging with activities which aimed at reducing loneliness and social isolation - from the purely practical to the psychological.This webinar will help you to think about these barriers and practical ways you might approach removing them.

We’ll be thinking about these issues in two ways. We will look at how a focus on the person you are working with can help you support them to engage, and we will also look at the double jeopardy provided by intersectionality, and how you might need to tackle that for whole groups from the outset.

For older people some of the groups at risk of double jeopardy here might include younger older people, men, members of minority communities, and LGBTQ+ older people.

This course is an excellent companion to 'Addressing barriers to participation via outreach comms'
