Community and Care Homes

Advances in health care have helped people in England to live longer than ever before. As a result, the number of older people in England is growing significantly and this rate of growth is projected to speed up over the next 20 years, with the number of people over 60 expected to increase from 14.9 million in 2014 to 18.5 million by 2025 (ONS, 2015).

We recognise that ageing, together with an accumulation of health and social changes over time, may result in increasing frailty for our population, but that these changes in health can often be reversed or overcome quite simply. Our work is primarily focussed on the promotion of healthy living and the prevention and management of illness and disability affecting older people. Our project portfolio reflects the interests of our member organisations and our experiences to date and contributes to our overall ambition for ‘healthy ageing’ in the south London population.
