Runnymede and Age UK are organising a conference exploring the issues faced by by black and minority ethnic (BME) older people, and those who work with them.
This free of charge event will highlight new research into ageing and ethnicity, and examples of local practice in developing inclusive services and engagement for and with older people from BME communities.
The conference will be engaging and participative, with a mixture of plenary and workshop sessions covering a variety of topics, including demographic trends of an increasingly ageing and diverse society, retirement, grandparenting, social care and disability, health and well-being, and voice and representation.
The conference will be relevant for professionals and practitioners - both from the statutory and voluntary sectors - involved in developing policy and practice to address the needs of an increasingly diverse older population. Representatives of BME older people's organisations are also very welcome to attend the conference.
