Connectivity and Digital Design for Health & Well-being across Generations, Places and Spaces - Research programme

GWT is delighted to announce that we will be a partner along with Active Stirling in the University of Stirling’s new research project – Connectivity and Digital Design for Health & Well-being across Generations, Places and Spaces.

The three-year project, led by the University of Stirling’s Professor Catherine Hennessy and supported by Professor Richard Haynes and Professor Anna Whittaker, will bring together academics from three of the University’s faculties – Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities and Health Sciences and Sport – as well as experts from the University of Plymouth. They will examine how digital resources can be designed and delivered to provide and engage older people in structured activity programmes and improve health and wellbeing.

The project team is ready to convene a Younger Person’s Reference Group (YPRG) which will then combine into an intergenerational reference group meeting quarterly over the next two years? We are trying to develop baseline measures for use with this age group, The first online meeting is being planned for August and will then meet quarterly. Support will be given to help individuals get online if required.

If you are interested please get in touch asap either by email Alison Clyde or phone 07769629988.
