Anna Dixon — The Age of Ageing Better

It is well known that the UK has an ageing population, especially as those born during the 1960s baby boom start to reach retirement age. However it is not just about how long we live, but how well we live, says Anna Dixon, Chief Executive for the Centre of Ageing Better. She gave a presentation in February at one of our regular webinars to explain how the centre is working towards ‘a society where everyone enjoys later life’.

Here is a video of her talk. There are some moments when sound quality is a bit marginal. After her slideshow, we finished with some questions and answers moderated by Christine Whetstone, our chair. You can download or view Anna’s slides here.
