Transitions in Later Life Learning Community

Established in 2016, the Transitions in Later Life (TiLL) learning community aims to advance practice, change attitudes to ageing and develop wider awareness of the importance of supporting people with the transition into later life. It brings together projects funded under the programme to work collectively on strategic issues facing the sector.

The learning community models the participatory approach taken by the UK Branch to working with our partners. With this approach we aim to move beyond data collection to the generation of learning and develop strong networks to enhance the impact of our work. 

The TILL learning community is made up of a core cohort of projects funded by the UK Branch which are testing and adapting new approaches to pre-retirement support, as well as wider projects supported under the programme. You can read a blog about this groupwork by one of our community members here.

We will continue to come together during 2018 to increase understanding about transitions and secure better support for people in mid to later life. You can read a summary of learning that has emerged from running the learning community in 2016-17 here.
