Design Council: Transform Ageing

Transform Ageing, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, is a pioneering programme taking a community and design led approach to improve people’s experience of ageing. The films show the exploration of this challenge; bringing 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.

In 2017, we produced a suite of ethnographic films tracking the first phase of workshops and community research, helping to document and understand how it felt for stakeholders and participants. In 2018, we are revisiting the programme and creating case-study films on the work and journey of several local social entrepreneurs.
