Age Old Questions

Calderdale Forum 50 Plus’s 2018 AGM featured a presentation by Paul Butcher, Calderdale Council’s Director of Public Health. The presentation was based on the Council’s Public Health Annual Report 2017-18, which looked at the lives of older people in the Calderdale area.

The report had several main goals:

  • To promote an ageing population as a positive and to draw on older peoples skills, knowledge and capacity in line with  Vision 2024
  • To promote further understand on the links between health, ageing and costs across our system .
  • The need to challenge ageism
  • To promote policy responses which support good health in older age.

We videoed the presentation and have broken it down into six clips, each with a separate theme, including the sixth and final video in which Paul answers questions from the audience. We’d like to thank Paul for his time and his permission to use these clips.
