SHARE GOOD IDEAS
This campaign isn't just about highlighting the problems of the ageing
countryside. It's about finding and sharing good ideas and more
sustainable solutions to enable older people to live well in rural
Our research identified lots of examples of approaches that worked. In
addition to our eight case studies highlighting good practice, we found many others that focused on
different aspects of rural living, including extra care housing
developments, fuel syndicates, intergenerational projects and various
telecare and virtual healthcare schemes.
Our partners, ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England), have developed a new 'Topic Sheet on Older People'. Part of a wider Community Led Planning 'Toolkit', the Topic Sheet provides information on how a community led plan can support and benefit older people.
We would welcome your examples of good practice in rural areas. If you know of any successful housing or finance initiatives that improve the lives of older people in rural areas, please share them here. Alternatively, why not visit our campaign blog: www.overthehillblog.org.
