Healthy Ageing: Visions for our Futures 2020

Oxford Brookes University marked the World Health Organisation’s Decade of Healthy Ageing with a month-long series of free online activities, and the Institute of Public Care was an active participant.

A series of lunchtime seminars, workshops, and talks explored the actions that individuals, employers, professionals, and researchers can take in meeting policy challenges, and shared advice and tips on how to age healthily. To discover more about the Healthy Ageing month, visit

On Tuesday, November 10, Katy Burch, Assistant Director, presented a session illustrating the aims, methodology, and early findings of an evaluation exploring the impact of a social impact bond-delivered transformation programme in (unpaid) carer support in Norfolk. The Institute of Public Care has been commissioned by Norfolk County Council to undertake the evaluation over a 3-year period.

Katy shared key findings from a rapid research review of the evidence relating to unpaid carer characteristics and needs, and 'what works' in unpaid carer support and social impact bonds, together with an exploration of the best standardised measures of carer wellbeing.
