Equality and diversity and older people with high support needs

This review adopts a ‘capability-based’ approach to equality, analysing older people with high support needs from different equality groups and highlighting relevant debates associated to equality and diversity.

Drawing on a range of reports, statistics and conversations with 13 experts, it presents: the equality profile of older people with high support needs; equality and diversity issues in accessing and experiencing services; the gaps in the evidence base; and a summary of the key debates and recommendations to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
