Ageing Without Children

This isn’t Levenshulme specific but here’s a report from a conference earlier this year. With an ageing population and social and health care increasingly reliant on family support the issues confronting people who do not have children as they get older can be daunting.

The conference, the first of its kind, aimed at people over 50 without children, aimed to:

  • Raise awareness of the numbers of people ageing without children
  • Consider how this will impact both society and social services
  • Explore the facts and figures behind the headlines
  • Examine some of the common myths about people ageing without children
  • Come together to think of creative and workable solutions as a society
