Workshop with the West Bromwich African Caribbean Resource Centre

23 March 2022

This was the third of our engagement workshops, and was facilitated by Bella Starling, Chair of the future of ageing working group.

On the day, older members of the West Bromwich African Caribbean Resource Centre (WBACRC) were invited to take part in a focus group where they could share their opinions on health and wellbeing technologies. All of the people who took part were aged 75 years and older, live in the local West Bromwich area, and are of African Caribbean origin.

Following the focus group, our researcher Molly Gray created an insightful blog, highlighting the key themes from the discussions that took place.
