Social Exclusion and Ageing in Diverse Rural Communities: CARDI Research Brief
Date published:20 March, 2012
Region:Republic of Ireland
Featured item on home page:
The report ‘Social Exclusion and Ageing in Diverse Rural Communities’, was launched recently (Monday, 20 February 2012) at NUI Galway by Ireland’s Minister of State for Disability, Equality, Mental health and Older People, Kathleen Lynch TD, and Northern Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture and Rural Development, Michelle O’Neill MLA.
Led by researchers at the Irish Centre for Social Gerontology (ICSG) and Queen's University Belfast, and funded by CARDI, it identifies five areas where older people living in rural areas can be excluded. These domains of exclusion are: (1) social connections and social resources; (2) services; (3) transport and mobility; (4) safety, security and crime; and (5) income and financial resources.
