A new report funded by the Centre for Ageing Research and Development in Ireland (CARDI) finds that many older people enjoy good social connections. However, a substantial number are at risk of social exclusion. It also finds that a lack of information about social exclusion hinders the effectiveness of policies and programmes aimed to help those older people most in need.

Ageing research flourishes when the research community connects with the relevant players from government, voluntary and community sector, business and older people themselves. As a result many funders of research and researchers themselves are recognising the benefits of engaging with service users. This research, carried out by Dr Brendan Murtagh, QUB on behalf of CARDI funded by OFMDFM (NI), reviews the nature of user involvement in research and how this can be strengthened to improve the quality of age research in Ireland, North and South.

Housing for an ageing population - choice, fairness and tenure

17th February 2014,

Choice, fairness and tenure were three key themes related to housing that emerged from a CARDI seminar, “Housing for an ageing population” that took place in Belfast on 13 February.

Professor Anthea Tinker of King’s College London gave the keynote address. She noted a growing emphasis on housing as a crucial ingredient in enabling older people to remain in a home of their own.

Key factors include growing numbers of people living alone, the extent of under-occupation and the poor condition of many homes.

Public and Community Transport for Older People in Rural Ireland, North and South

Download full report

Transport and mobility are essential aspects of everyday life.  Older people who do not drive need access to health services, shopping, social activities, community centres and other facilities - public transport must be sufficient to support this access.  For older people, accessible transport services can help combat social exclusion and support independent living.

CARDI has conducted research into public and community transport in Ireland, North and South, to examine how transport services could better meet the needs of older people in the future.
