Ambition for Ageing and Ageing Better in Camden would like to invite you to join us at the launch of an exciting new research report:

“Before this, I had nothing.” A Report on the Development and Impact of a BAME-Led Partnership for Tackling Social Isolation Among Older People in Camden.

When: Thursday 11th November, 1:30pm – 3pm

Where: Online (Zoom)

For the past three years Ageing Better in Camden (ABC) has funded a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Community Action Project. The BAME CAP set out to develop the capacity of micro-organisations to tackle social isolation and loneliness among older people from small African Heritage communities in Camden.

ABC’s new research explores the success of this partnership model and reveals the impact, lessons learned, and issues to be addressed for the future.  Report author Adwoa Manful will share learning from this innovative research alongside other speakers who have been instrumental in developing the BAME CAP.

The event will also feature speakers from Ambition for Ageing who will showcase research and learning from the Ageing Equally research project, which focused on what makes a good place in which to grow older for people who belong to minority communities, and has shown that marginalisation is linked to the risk of social isolation. Ageing Equally aimed to generate a deeper understanding of what supports wellbeing and what makes places age-friendly for a cross-section of communities of identity or experience within the population of Greater Manchester, in order to prevent social isolation.

So don’t miss this opportunity to hear from those involved with these vital research programmes – full details of speakers will be confirmed soon, and there will also be the opportunity to discuss the issues raised in smaller groups.
