Joseph Rowntree Foundation reports on ageing

In January 2012, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation published two reports looking at ageing from the points of view of Gypsy and South Asian Families.

‘Perspectives on ageing in South Asian families’ explores the experiences and views of South Asian elders and their families living in Wolverhampton, highlighting cultural expectations and the challenges this community faces in terms of ageing and support needs.

‘Perspectives on ageing in Gypsy families’ explores the views and experiences of older Gypsies, offering a glimpse into the past and reflecting on how the non-Gypsy community have influenced the Gypsy way of life.
