Research

 

Our mission is to provide practical help for older people and the organisations that support them. We do this by working with our partners, by building confidence in those we support and by accessing resources that can facilitate lasting change.

Part of our work involves carrying out research into services for older people to learn lessons that benefit organisations and enable them to improve the way they work. We have brought all our findings together for easy reference and this section replaces our old website www.orbit-research.org.uk.
