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

of the urban design characteristics; street layout; and the levels, speed and composition of road traffic in the area.

The project aims to develop and test three tools. Two will be for local government use, to model and to value levels of CS in their area. The third will be a set of questions that can be asked in surveys to find out whether and how severance affects local people. The tools can be used by local government to test proposed transport policies, development plans and interventions to assess whether they will affect severance. They can also be used by researchers to find out whether and how CS affects people's mobility, social isolation, and short- and long-term health and wellbeing. The survey can also be used in national surveys so that a more complete picture of this problem is obtained across the UK.

ADEPT British Geriatrics Society Inukshuk Consultancy

How better design can facilitate mobility, connectivity & wellbeing for older people: a participatory approach to design research. - EP/K03717X/1 - Professor Sarah Wigglesworth - University of Sheffield

Grant value 640K

This three year research project will try to understand how the design and management of housing and neighbourhoods can be improved to better support the mobility of older people and their participation in community life.

Working in partnership with older people and professionals, the research aims to develop a number of prototype designs for housing and neighbourhoods that better facilitate older people's mobility. It also aims to improve professionals' abilities to design, develop and manage age-friendly places.
