“I didn’t want to be sat at home doing nothing. I wanted my voice to be heard.” – Ahmed
The Young Foundation was part of a group of beneficiaries who received funding from the Local Government Association as part of its 2 year Ageing Well project. This money was used to work with local authorities across the UK to innovate around the needs caused by our ageing population.
This video was created right at the end of the programme in 2012, to provide a legacy of the work achieved during that time. It tells three stories of ageing in the community, and how the Ageing Well project made a difference to the lives of its participants.
