Older people invited to take part in an exciting short project in Ramsgate
People aged 65 and over are being invited by the University of Kent and Discovery Planet to take part in an exciting short project on Wednesday, July 13.
All will receive a warm welcome at the Discovery Planet Shop and light refreshments will be available.
One people are settled in, a team of researchers from the University will explain how they are conducting research into the design of local health and wellbeing services for older people.
They’ll show participants how to use a small camera, which can then be taken away to use as people go about their daily lives.
From the photographs, which the team will later collect and develop, researchers will be able to gain insights into what is important to older people locally. These insights could be used to feed into decision making about the sort of services which should be made available. Those taking part will get to learn more about the research going on at the university, and how to get involved in the future.
At the end of the session participants will receive a shopping voucher by way of a ‘Thank You’ for taking part.
The session will take place at the Discovery Planet Shop, 47 High Street Ramsgate, CT11 9AG, on Wednesday, July 13, from 1pm to 3pm. Transport can be arranged if needed.
