Active at 60: local evaluation research

Active at 60 Local was a pilot initiative commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to identify the scope for utilising smart technology to: deliver services more effectively to older people; and leverage increased levels of activity among older people.

The project formed part of the government’s response to address the challenges and opportunities of an ageing population as highlighted in the publication Building a Society for All Ages, a strategy aimed at enabling people to make the most of their later years and ensuring access to the right
support at the right time.
