Public Engagement

Three generations cyclingThe Centre is developing new programmes to address the relationship between the healthy ageing brain and the healthy ageing body.

Focusing on vitality, we are:

  • working closely with other groups to develop interactive research projects
  • linking with other work in Newcastle to translate these new findings into improvements in health
  • running trials of new treatments and assessing ways of making any positive interventions available to all

Research findings will be vigorously disseminated through contacts with NHS and other stakeholder groups, including the older persons' action groups, as represented in the North East Forum on Ageing (Years Ahead). This offers considerable potential to deliver major benefits to patients and the general public, as well as reductions in the health and social care costs of an ageing population.
