I recently travelled to Margate in Kent with GMOPN Action Group member Elaine Unegbu, in order to attend the Big Lottery’s annual Ageing Better Conference. Having never been to a conference before, I was quite apprehensive and wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I needn’t have worried though as the conference was fantastic! I had the opportunity to learn so much from a wide range of people and to find out what the rest of the country is doing in order to make their area more age-friendly.
The Centre for Social Action has partnered with the Centre for Ageing Better to launch the Age-friendly and inclusive volunteering fund. The fund has been set up to develop and document models of good practice in supporting older people’s voluntary and community activity.
