This workshop will cover the importance of shared spaces and social infrastructure, such as parks, community spaces and shops, in place-based working. We will draw from learning from the Ambition for Ageing programme, and our published reports Social Infrastructure: How shared spaces make communities work and Ageing in Place for Minority Ethnic communities.
The workshop is designed for anyone working to make neighbourhoods more age-friendly, including project managers, community development workers, or and neighbourhood volunteers.
During the workshops, there will be an opportunity to apply this learning in practice, hear from a relevant speaker, share your ideas with other practitioners, and to reflect on applying the learning to your own area.
This workshop is part of Ambition for Ageing’s Age-Friendly Places in Practice workshops series. You can sign up to attend just one workshop, or all three. Please follow the links below to register for the other workshops.
