New report from the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing

693A9280

New report from the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing explores the likely impact on the museum sector of the ageing demographic. More importantly perhaps, it also gives recommendations on how the sector can prepare and adapt, including lots of case studies from across the UK.

The report places emphasis on the idea of the older members of a community being an asset. It also points towards their being a possibility of a double dividend, with museums supporting age friendly communities to flourish through work with and for older people, and in turn being supported by their communities – reciprocal resilience.
