Transforming not excluding – the impact of information technology and innovation on later life

This was the subject of a Symposium held at the Palace of Westminster on Thursday 8th January 2015. The event was organised by the South East England Forum on Ageing (SEEFA) as part of a wider project on digital inclusion undertaken in partnership with South East Age UKs.

75 participants included later life, digital inclusion and design experts, business leaders and representatives of central and local government. The debate was chaired by David Brindle, public services editor of The Guardian, and hosted by Lord Filkin, Chair of the Centre for Ageing Better.

An initial report from the symposium sets out the issues identified and actions proposed. SEEFA Symposium 2015 Report

SEEFA and South East Age UKs are committed to engaging with later life, digital inclusion and design experts, business leaders and representatives of central and local government – to bring about the changes identified. There will also be a longer published report from SEEFA/South East Age UKs.
