Expanding south west! Working with Transform Ageing

As well as their work across Lancashire, The Sewing Rooms is one of 19 ventures supported by Transform Ageing, a first-of-its-kind initiative to change the way society approaches and designs services for people in later life.

Funded by the Big Lottery Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK, Transform Ageing takes a community and design-led approach to improve people’s experience of ageing.

Transform Ageing is focused on the south-west of England. It is being delivered by UnLtd, the foundation for social entrepreneurs, Design Council, Centre for Ageing Better and the South West Academic Health Science Network.

With support from Transform Ageing ‘The Sewing Rooms’ will be able to set up their service in the South West so that these communities can benefit from the expert assistance from a social enterprise, specialising in improving the health and wellbeing of the communities they work with, and improving peoples’ life chances.

We’ll provide updates on this project as it develops.
