Thousands to shape £8 million age-friendly design projects
Date:9/6/2013

participate actively in the research through a series of workshops, interviews and co-design sessions, helping to develop and test innovations such as crowd sourcing about mobility barriers, mobility apps, adaptations to mobility scooters, and means to overcome conflicts between the needs of different users of urban space.

The project will co-create practical tools which can act as complements or alternatives to redesign of the built environment. It will produce a website and report at its conclusion.

The team will investigate and address variation and contradictions in needs of different groups of older people (and even for single individuals over time), and between different built environment agendas.

Project partners:

City of York Council Forum of Mobilty Centre
Leeds City Council Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust Living Streets MRC-McLean Hazel Ltd
North of England Civic Trust Royal Town Planning Institute
The Design Council Thomas Pocklington Trust
York Blind and Partially Sighted Society

Street mobility and accessibility: developing tools for overcoming older people's barriers to walking - EP/K037323/1 led Dr Jennifer Mindell UCL

Grant value 1.3 million

Streets full of traffic can sever communities. This project will examine the effects of community severance (CS), when busy roads act as a barrier or deterrent to people's mobility. The team will study four residential areas to develop an in-depth understanding and measure of CS. They will ask local residents what is important to them and observe what happens in practice when older people try to walk around their neighbourhood.

The project will consider all this information in the context
