Tranforming Ageing

Call for applications

11 Oct 2017

In October 2017 the Design Council and partners put a funded call out for Transform Ageing Applications which would be  "radical, forward-thinking ideas for new product and service solutions that help meet this ambition and make a difference to society."

The Application call was based upon six innovation briefs and the process to develop these is outlined in the  video below.

Recognising that those with first-hand experience provide unique insight, in 2017 Transform Ageing brought together groups of people in later life, their friends, families and carers, social entrepreneurs and public-sector leaders in communities in Cornwall, North Devon, Somerset and Torbay to use design led tools and methods to understand what people need and want, what would improve their experience of ageing and what would make a difference to their day-to-day lives.

From this work six innovation briefs have been developed to encourage social entrepreneurs, from the south-west and around the UK, to launch product or service solutions in the region that support connected, healthy, happy and active later lives.
