We need members to submit their case studies, good practice, reports, research, (new and old) to create a new Evidence Bank on the topic of Loneliness. When we have received information, we will then ask experts with specialist knowledge to look through your contributions and create useful responses in the form of blogs, podcasts, social media discussions. We will also create a short series of information sheets that will support you in your work to aid project development, fundraising and evaluation.
Simply upload ( http://ageofcreativity.co.uk/add/ ) your contributions or get in touch ( http://ageofcreativity.co.uk/contact/ ) with your suggestions.
Age of Creativity will be focussing on 5 specialist themes during 2016:
- Age Friendly
- New Technology
