Gillian Crosby is Director of the charity Centre for Policy on
Ageing (CPA), established by the Nuffield Foundation (1947).
The charity aims to promote the interests of older people
through research, policy analysis and the dissemination of
information - and always by drawing directly on the experiences of
older people themselves to enhance the sharing of knowledge and
good practice in all sectors.
Gillian has developed the unique information resources, called
AgeInfo, to establish an evidence base for the field of ageing. She
has participated in numerous projects on a range of topics around
ageing, most recently exploring older people's vision for long term
care; age discrimination in health and social care services;
promoting the financial wellbeing of older people; and independent
living for older people with high support needs.
Gillian sits on several advisory and research groups, including
the UK Advisory Forum on Ageing and is a trustee of In Control.
