The Transform Ageing programme is a pioneering community and design-led programme delivered through a partnership led by the Design Council that aims to improve people’s experience of ageing. 

It brings together people in later life, their friends, family and carers, social entrepreneurs and health and social care leaders to define, develop and deliver new solutions that better support the needs and aspirations of our ageing communities in Cornwall, Devon, and Somerset.  

As we approach the conclusion of the Transform Ageing programme, we reflect on our experiences, what we learned and what we would do differently next time.
