[img]I would like to introduce our latest report Ageing in the UK Now which is a summary of some of the key research and developing practice relevant to the UK’s ageing sector, and also matching these against the wider political and social agenda.
I emphasize that this is very much an introduction to this area: a snapshot of what is going on. It can be used as a helpful beginning to exploring topics that are relevant to the field of ageing. You might also find the bibliography and compendium of resources helpful.
We are planning to grow and expand on this opening review and update it on a continuing basis. We are exploring how best to do this in respect of a format and schedule. We will be in contact with you to update you on what we produce in due course. 
In the meantime if you have any feedback this would be very welcome and if you require any more information about our work please do not hesitate to contact me or my colleagues at BJF.

All best wishes
