Socially Excluded and Too Old To Help?

Socially Excluded and Too Old To Help?

A report launched by Age UK and The Salvation Army “shines a light on the specific challenges experienced by people who are socially excluded in later life.”

“The report ‘Too old to help’ found that while social exclusion was incredibly difficult at any age, ageing magnifies the challenges and the stigma which socially excluded people already face, while at the same time often reducing the support which is available.”

“The report highlights the numbers of socially excluded older people and the fact that services too often lack the specialist skills and resources to meet their needs.”

“Sadly, the research found that ageist attitudes and assumptions also play a role. It found some professionals were deterred from providing support for older people as they felt they were ‘too old to change’, or because they believed that resources were better invested in helping younger adults.” Read the full report
