Ageing Studies take part in event to help celebrate International Older People's Day


Brunel’s Ageing Studies team members Eleanor van den Heuvel and Emma Harding were invited to present their work at Age UK’s annual 60+ Fair on 27th September 2016 to help celebrate International Older People’s Day.  They joined many local community groups including Active 50s, Hillingdon Carers, Hillingdon Mind, Healthwatch, Consortium for Housebound & Disabled Pensioners and more, taking over the indoor market space. 

 The Ageing Studies stall was well attended and many older people joined the Brunel Older people’s Reference Group (BORG).

As part of their attendance Brunel researchers were able to display the ageing suit, which helps students  studying at Brunel University London experience some of the common problems associated with ageing first hand.
