Transform Ageing through Design

Transform Ageing through Design

25 September 2019

The Transform Ageing programme is taking a design-led approach to ageing, by bringing people in later life, social entrepreneurs and public sector leaders together to think differently. Here are three films that demonstrate the impact social entrepreneurs are making in their communities and how we supported them to develop and deliver innovative product and service solutions. 

Move It or Lose It

In this film, we hear how support from Transform Ageing has helped Move It or Lose It to scale-up their social enterprise, creating valuable impacts across the South West. 

Forest bathing with Aquafolium

Discover the story behind Aquafolium’s use of woodland and wildlife to successfully challenge perceptions of the support that can benefit people in later life. 

Creating the perfect Personal Alarm

This film tells the story of Personal Alarm Watch and how social entrepreneurs Ewan and Adi were supported to work with product users and other stakeholders to create a better alternative to traditional pendant alarms. 

Transform Ageing is a pioneering programme taking a community and design-led approach to improve people’s experience of ageing. It brings together people in later life, their friends, family and carers, social entrepreneurs and public sector leaders to define, develop and deliver new solutions that better support the needs and aspirations of our ageing communities.
