Older people ‘getting things done’: Involvement in policy and planning initiatives

The involvement of older people in planning and evaluating services is high on the agenda for many organisations. Using different case studies, this report: maps out the ways in which older people got involved, offering ideas for other organisations and for older people themselves; explores the key issues that need consideration; draws out good practice from the schemes studied; highlights how older people took part because they wanted to make a difference, not just as a way to pass the time.
