Centre for Policy on Ageing issues 'call for evidence'

The Centre for Policy on Ageing, on behalf of the Local Government Association (LGA), is making a 'call for evidence' on the strategies that local authorities need to adopt to accommodate an increasingly ageing population.

The call is particularly interested in looking beyond traditional 'care and support' services to approaches that improve older-age quality of life, provide an age-friendly environment and include 'prevention' measures that promote healthy ageing in place.

They would like to hear of any innovative and groundbreaking work that people are doing. Examples may come from any area including strategic planning, commissioning, service design and delivery or activities developed in partnership with local networks of older people and communities. Responses may also include how help can be given locally to prepare the older population for the government's 'digital-by-default' strategy, how authorities are meeting the requirements of the Care Act 2014, or how local authorities are engaging with their own ageing workforces.

The call ends on 14th November 2014.
