UKRI Healthy Ageing Challenge

With challenge comes an opportunity for positive change. In terms of the Healthy Ageing Challenge, this change relates to ensuring that as an ageing population we all remain as active, productive, independent and socially connected across the generations for as long as possible. Core to the delivery of our mission is our collaborative work with investors, policy makers and partners to ensure innovative products and services needed to create positive impact are brought to market and scaled.

Centre for Ageing Better

Healthy Ageing Challenge support doesn’t stop at funding though. There are many other ways in which we help and inspire our projects to achieve their best. From making valuable connections, to sharing knowledge and encouraging peer to peer support via a dedicated Community of Practice.

Run by our lead partner the Centre for Ageing Better, a charitable foundation, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, and part of the government’s What Works Network, membership to the Community of practice is free and open to anyone who has an interest in Healthy Ageing.
