Deliberative workshop findings – I keep physically and mentally healthy and active
We ran workshops to explore how keeping physically and mentally healthy and active is beneficial to those in later life.
In January and February 2016, Ipsos MORI and the Centre for Ageing Better conducted two day-long deliberative workshops with people aged 45 and over.
The workshops were the final phase of a programme of work conducted by Ipsos MORI for the Centre for Ageing Better, looking at how different groups of people in England are currently experiencing and thinking about later life.
Participants explored what the topic ‘I keep physically and mentally healthy and active’ meant to them, and then developed and debated their own ideas for what actions or changes could help more people enjoy this aspect of a good later life. This short briefing summarises the main findings from the workshops on the topic.
