As part of their Delivering prevention in an ageing world programme, ILC-UK are asking for input on how we can deliver prevention in an ageing world.

Last month, ILC-UK hosted three expert roundtables launching a series of consultation papers to gain insights on what works in:

  • Democratising access to prevention
  • Inspiring and engaging people with prevention
  • Using technology effectively for prevention
