Resources for Older People's Organisations in London

Positive Ageing in London and Age UK London have published a joint report looking at how older
people are shaping London boroughs’ work on the local economy. You can read the full report on PAiL’s
website. We found that in many boroughs, older people are not addressed as a specific group in
strategies on employment, volunteering, education and skills but tend to be addressed mostly as
recipients of health and social care services. Specific difficulties older people face in, for example,
the job-market, are also not adequately addressed by targets for ‘working-age’ populations. We
found promising initiatives in some boroughs and would like to see these being extended and
becoming more widespread.

It would be very interesting to hear if readers have comments either on the report, or more
generally on how older people are included in work to develop the local economy in London. If
you do, please contact Gordon Deuchars at gdeuchars@ageuklondon.org.uk.

Opening Doors London with Age UK Camden as the lead agency, and in partnership with Age UKs across London, is the biggest project providing information and support services to and with older lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender (OLGBT) people in the UK.

Their latest events listings (for September) is now out full of 4 pages of events.
