09/11/2017 - 16:44

MICRA and the Greater Manchester Ageing Hub recently launched a new report looking at inequalities and quality of life in later age.

The report presents the findings and policy recommendations from the 5-year ‘Frailty, Resilience and Inequality in Later Life’ programme, which aimed at providing an integrated understanding of processes that lead to both positive and negative outcomes in later life, and how these outcomes are shaped by inequalities. It has considered factors operating at particular points of the life-course – be they genetic, metabolic, psychological or social – and how these are framed by socioeconomic inequalities. It notably underlines the links between inequalities and socio-economic position, ethnicity, gender, and where you live, and the different impact retirement, volunteering or care obligations have on people with various financial means, 

The report is available here.
