Leicester Ageing Together's Second Learning Event - July 4th at DMU

Published on 30th May 2018

Successful interventions – what really counts?

Loneliness has been described as a modern epidemic, to such an extent that it now has its own Government Minister.

We already know there is a direct correlation between loneliness and ill health and that it’s a particular issue for older people, putting pressure on our health and care services when they are already stretched. So how do we tackle this?

This second Learning Event will examine the different support models employed by Leicester Ageing Together and consider outcomes from different approaches.

Speakers include:
Dr Jamie Mackrill, Director of New Opportunities, Vista; Dr Louise Thomson and Sarah Hadfield, Institute of Mental Health, Nottingham.
