Later Life Goals Evaluation Webinar

The Later Life Goals project is set to restart after a 6-month pause due to Covid-19. This upcoming webinar is a chance to reflect on what we’ve learned so far.

Join us from 10.00 – 11.30 on Wednesday 16 September to hear more about the difference that Later Life Goals project can make to the lives of older people it’s supporting with information and advice. After a six-month pause due to Covid-19, we’re gearing up to restart the Later Life Goals project for its final year on 1 October, so it’s a good time to reflect on what we’ve learnt so far.

During the webinar, our external evaluators, SocialQual, will take us through the findings of their small qualitative evaluation, looking at the difference the work has made to the lives of nine older people at two of the thirteen sites that Later Life Goals runs in. Fingers crossed, we’ll even have the chance to see and hear a little from the older people themselves through some short videos! SocialQual will also talk us through the thoughts and experiences of the advisors they interviewed.

We’ll then take a brief look at our interim quantitative findings on whether the project seems to make a difference to people’s feelings of loneliness and wellbeing. This was a key thing for us to test with Later Life Goals and, of course, loneliness is now a bigger issue than ever given the pandemic and the effect it’s had on our lives.

Finally, we’ll bring things together to look ahead to the final year of the project and beyond.
